The Charleston Metro Chamber is excited to announce the participants of the Leadership Charleston Class of 2023. For over 45 years, the Chamber has offered this highly sought-after professional development opportunity.

Through community immersion and interactions with diverse leaders, Leadership Charleston cultivates leaders and ignites the advancement of the Charleston metro. Throughout the yearlong program, the class will meet each month, with program days focused on a facet of the community, such as local government, military, philanthropy and economic development.

Participants experience the power of working with other community leaders and organizations for positive growth and advancement of the region.
