The Charleston Metro Chamber is excited to announce the participants of the Leadership Charleston Class of 2022. 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.

Upon graduating in August 2022, Leadership Charleston Class of 2022 members will become Leadership Charleston Alumni, a distinguished group of leaders that includes Chamber Board of Directors, elected officials and prominent local leaders.
