Greater Shreveport Leadership Program taking applications until Dec. 15

by BIZ Magazine

Founded in 1977, ??the Greater Shreveport Leadership Program, is an engaging, year-long in-depth interactive program of the Greater Shreveport Chamber that prepares and develops both community-minded business and civic leaders of tomorrow. If you’re interested in meeting like-minded people who are wanting to serve our community, while working through a targeted curriculum together and receiving unique access to the movers, shakers, and newsmakers in our region, then this is the program for you!  Our Leadership Program can help you develop your Leadership skills and build lasting relationships that will allow you to better serve our community.  It’s also a great way for employers to develop, grow, recognize and reward their key employees.  

The program begins in February with a two day retreat and participants meet once each month thereafter.  They travel as a group to various locations throughout the community where they meet, learn from and connect with civic, community and business leaders. Sessions are usually held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, with the May session featuring a visit to the Legislature. The program includes a class community betterment project and finishes with a graduation ceremony. 

The program curriculum includes: 

  • Community History
  • Education
  • Economic Development & Transportation
  • Healthcare & Welfare
  • Legislative Affairs
  • Local Government & Community Development 
  • Media/Communications 

The Greater Shreveport Leadership Program is available to a limited number of participants each year and the application deadline for the 2023 class is December 15, 2022.
