Greater Shreveport Chamber Leadership Program accepting applications

by BIZ Magazine

For more than 45 years, the Greater Shreveport Chamber has been identifying and preparing future leaders through its Leadership Program.  Participation in the program is a great way to become better acquainted with the assets and challenges of our community.

Participants expand their leadership abilities through education programs, exposure to existing leadership and civic organizations, and in-depth discussions of relevant issues.  Leadership graduates gain access to leadership opportunities through the Chamber to promote the advancement of the Greater Shreveport area.

Goals of the program are:

  • Identify, motivate and develop community leaders
  • Expand the leadership abilities of participants through educational programs, exposure to existing leadership and civic organizations, and in-depth discussions of relevant issues
  • Improve communication among leaders
  • Provide a channel for participants to gain access to leadership opportunities and become involved in the development of solutions for community challenges

Participants meet once each month and travel as a group to various locations throughout the community. Sessions are usually held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. The May session is also a mandatory, overnight, two-day visit to the Legislature.

Each class works collectively to select and complete a community service project to benefit a nonprofit organization project or cause. 

Greater Shreveport Leadership Program tuition is $1,700 for member organizations and $2,200 for non-members which covers all program costs, meeting rooms, transportation during sessions and meals. A non-refundable one-time application fee of $50 will also be assessed. Each year, one scholarship will be awarded to a representative from the community at large. Deadline to apply is Feb. 2, 2024.
To learn more about the Greater Shreveport Leadership Program, visit the Chamber on-line at or call 677-2547.
Deadline to apply for the Greater Shreveport Leadership Program Class of 2024 is October 31, 2023.
