Leadership Chattanooga Class of 2022-23 Opens Nominations

Chattanooga, Tenn. (Feb. 1, 2022) — Nominations for the Leadership Chattanooga Class of 2022-23 are now open, the Chattanooga Chamber Foundation announces. This 10-month leadership development program provides opportunities for local, diverse professionals to learn more about our community and contribute to the area’s growth and success by exploring a new sector each session.

All monthly sessions, including orientation and retreat, are currently planned for in-person engagement. Chattanooga Chamber leadership will monitor health department recommendations thoroughly throughout the program to ensure in-person meetings are safe.

Participants also receive additional leadership development through meaningful self-reflection, peer coaching, community service projects and networking opportunities, including meeting with state leaders.

A maximum of 40 leaders participate in Leadership Chattanooga each year, selected through a competitive application process conducted by the Leadership Chattanooga Selection Committee. The Committee evaluates candidates based on:

  • Sincere commitment, motivation, and interest in serving the community
  • Demonstrated dedication to civic engagement through past volunteer activities
  • Interest in public service through seeking elected office, volunteering for a nonprofit board or other key leadership role
  • Recognized potential for career advancement to top leadership positions
  • Alignment with the diversity of our community through representation of diverse economic sectors, professions, viewpoints, ages, cultural perspectives, ethnic backgrounds, and geographical areas throughout Hamilton County
