Charleston Metro Chamber Announces Leadership Charleston Class of 2021

The Charleston Metro Chamber is excited to announce the participants of the Leadership Charleston Class of 2021. 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.

Offering an intensive and up-close look at the most challenging issues and opportunities facing the region, the program introduces leaders to the realities, opportunities and challenges of our civic and business communities. Participants experience the power of working with other community leaders and organizations for positive growth and advancement of the region.

“Leadership Charleston allowed me the opportunity to learn about important industries and issues in the region, along with tools to be a more effective and mindful leader,” said Chelsea Ex-Lubeskie, Class of 2019.

Upon graduating in August 2021, Leadership Charleston Class of 2021 members will become Leadership Charleston Alumni, a distinguished group of leaders that includes Chamber Board of Directors, elected officials and prominent local leaders.

The Charleston Metro Chamber would like to thank Home TelecomPinnacle Financial Partners, Roper St. Francis Healthcare and the South Carolina Stingrays for their support as Presenting Sponsors and Positively People for their continued support as the Leadership Charleston Training Sponsor. For questions about Leadership Charleston, please contact Therese Gordon at tgordon@charlestonchamber.org.
