About Leadership Greenville
Leadership Greenville is the Greenville Chamber’s premier leadership development program designed to inform and prepare qualified leaders for Greenville County. By taking an intensive look into the issues affecting Greenville County, Leadership Greenville prepares and motivates participants to provide quality, dynamic leadership within the area. Since the program began in 1973, there have been over 2000 participants. Many alumni have served in key leadership positions within their businesses and organizations, as well as city council, county council, school board, members of Congress and as judges.

Leadership Greenville requires a 10-month commitment. Participants are selected through an application process based upon their past involvement in the community and their ability to set and achieve high personal goals. New classes embark each year on a journey to understand the inner-workings of our area, including Managed Growth and the Economy, Quality of Life, Human Services, Local Government, Justice, Education and State Government.

Each class selects a project or projects to meet a need in the area. Class Projects are chosen based on proposals submitted by class members, as well as nonprofit Chamber-member organizations.

Leadership Greenville’s Class 43 is sponsored by AcumenIT and USC Upstate.

Additional leadership development programs at the Greenville Chamber include Youth Leadership Greenville, Leadership Greenville Alumni, Ignite Corporate Leadership, Opportunity Greenville, and Pulse Young Professionals.
