Leadership: Redwood City, Belmont, Menlo Park, San Carlos


Developing Leaders for the Future of our Community

Our ten-month program provides participants the opportunity for face-to-face meetings and hands-on workshops with experts and key decision makers.
In dynamic sessions held one Friday a month, September through June, participants learn about timely and relevant issues of vital concern to their city; and learn how they can effectively shape the future of their community, their organization, or their business.

  • Participants will gain a broader understanding of their community and how it functions as they are introduced to influential community leaders.
  • Participants will acquire valuable information and access to resources, which will aid them in their work and civic engagement.
  • Participants will have the opportunity to create a positive presence and identify themselves, their business or organization as partners to the community.

Sessions generally run from 8am until 3pm.  A continental breakfast and lunch are provided.


We invite those individuals seeking to challenge themselves by becoming more educated and involved in their community.  Enrollment is limited to 45 individuals. Completed applications are due back to the Chamber by Friday, September 1, 2017.


Tuition for the program is $1,300.00, due by the first class day.  Applications received after July 15, 2017, tuition is increased to $1500.00.


Class members must not miss more than 2 classes to graduate from the program.
