The Palm Beach North Prosperity Leadership Program is designed to educate professionals about the unique characteristics of Palm Beach North while focusing on the Chamber’s four imperatives: Prosperous Economy, High Quality of Life, Smart and Connected Region, and Regional Leadership.
This immersive experience will offer access to community leaders and provide participants with a deeper understanding of our region’s economic, social and civic environments. Network with other professionals, brainstorm and devise solutions to some of our area’s greatest issues and give back to the Palm Beach North community by participating in this unique and educational program.
The mission of this leadership program is to educate and inform participants about the distinct characteristics that make Palm Beach North Florida’s Prosperity Coast. The program will focus on a prosperous economy, high quality of life, smart and connected region, and regional leadership within the 10 municipalities that make up Palm Beach North. You will attend presentations given by key community leaders and learn more about the diverse civic, economic and social environments within each area. Our goal is to provide a platform where current leaders of our business community will have access to elected officials, top executives and leaders, while becoming immersed, engaged and informed about our region.
Members will become educated on the history of each community, current trends and issues in our economy, as well as the growth and development strategies of each city. Participants will be issued a challenge during their initiation, which they will work collaboratively on addressing throughout the program. The class will then present their solution(s) to the Economic Development Committee and receive feedback regarding the viability of their proposal(s) from private and public stakeholders.
While providing a platform for members to grow their professional networks and build relationships with business owners, city officials and managers, civic involvement and educating participants about our county are at the forefront of Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce’s Prosperity Leadership Program. Ultimately, this is a chance for leaders to elevate their knowledge and expand their network, while giving back to our community. Participants will then develop ways in which we can all help the Palm Beach North area continue to thrive for residents and businesses alike.
Applicants must be members in good standing of the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. Experienced professionals and upper-level management will be considered.
