Leadership Alexandria 2.0
The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to building a stronger community one leader at a time. For 27 years, the Chamber’s Leadership Alexandria Program has trained existing or emerging leaders by offering nine months of extensive programming focused on developing leadership skills while teaching participants about the community that they are living and/or working in. Many of the more than 650 program graduates have asked, "Whats next?"
The answer to the above question is Leadership Alexandria 2.0! This program has been designed as a follow-up to Leadership Alexandria. The 2.0 level takes a deeper dive into the personal leadership style of each participant and how strong leadership can impact the future of the entire community. Each leader plays a significant role in making the community the best it can be, and leadership begins with knowing yourself to lead yourself!
The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with GiANT Worldwide, Kelly Jahner-Byrne, Triune Leadership Services, and Straight Up Leadership to take local leadership to the next level for greater community impact.
Leadership Alexandria 2.0 is only open to graduates of the Leadership Alexandria program (any year). Class size is limited to 20 students. Tuition is $400 for Alexandria Chamber members, $500 for non-members.
