Chamber Leadership Development Program: Leadership Development & Chamber Governance

  • July 28, August 4, August 11, and August 25
  • Virtual Event

The Chamber Leadership Alliance (CLA) is proud to present you with the first core competency webinars for our Chamber Leadership Development Program (CLDP) on Leadership Development & Chamber Governance on July 28, August 4, August 11, and August 25!

The Chamber Leadership Alliance is a joint venture resulting from 6 years of collaboration where our organization, the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation, came together with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, US Black Chambers, Inc., and the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to produce the Chamber Leadership Development Program, sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank.

This program will leverage knowledge from subject matter experts in the higher education and business community to provide chamber executives and business organization leaders with the necessary tools to grow sustainable chambers/chapters and advocacy organizations to effectively build and strengthen minority, women, LGBT, disability, and veteran business communities.

CLA's Four Core Competencies that participants will learn in-depth knowledge about:

  1. Fundraising, Grant Writing & Access to Capital (click the link to view our past training materials)
  2. Leadership Development & Chamber Governance
  3. Administration and Sustainability
