The Chamber is dedicated to the support and promotion of business and to helping mold Chatham into a place that everyone is proud to do business and call home.  With the expected growth for Chatham County, there will be more and more opportunities that arise. The demand for effective leaders will be crucial. Leadership Chatham, a signature program of the Chatham Chamber of Commerce, is an innovative program designed to develop informed, skilled and involved community leaders.  


The Leadership Chatham program takes participants on a journey through the social, cultural, political and economic makeup of our community.  Access to existing community experts will yield firsthand knowledge of critical issues facing Chatham County.  This program has had rave reviews year after year.


During each Leadership Chatham Class year, participants work closely as a team to develop a class project that is of benefit to Chatham County and follows along with the mission of the Chatham Chamber of Commerce. 


The Leadership Chatham brochure and application details more information about the program.  Each class year begins in September.
