Leadership Gainesville 47 Application 2020
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Leadership Gainesville (LG) program is a 10-month community leadership series designed to develop the skills leaders need to excel, but the program is just the beginning. Joining the Leadership Gainesville family means joining a group of community leaders including small business owners, politicians and nonprofit heads. The program includes a combination of in-depth issue seminars and skills development designed to enhance self-awareness of leadership approaches. The program provides community immersion experiences and advanced skill development which enable participants to explore critical issues in Gainesville’s business environment.

HISTORY
In 1974 the Greater Gainesville Chamber of Commerce (then known as the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce) launched the very first Leadership program in the State of Florida. As the oldest leadership program in the state of Florida, LG has graduated more than 1,800 participants ranging from homemakers to senators.

Today, Leadership Gainesville is the single most unique opportunity for emerging and existing leaders to build, collaborate, and steward a vibrant, interconnected community in the Greater Gainesville region. The program identifies, educates and develops leadership skills in approximately 50 individuals each year following a competitive application process. The goals are simple:

- EXPAND leadership potential
- IMPROVE communications between present and future leaders
- INSPIRE new leaders to tackle tough community challenges in an informed and responsible manner.

If you want a deeper connection to the community and believe leadership is an investment worth making in your career and civic stewardship, Leadership Gainesville is for you!
