  • Dear Leadership League City 2021 Applicant:

    Thank you for your interest in the Leadership League City, a program organized in 2016 under the direction of the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce. This program is designed to nurture and engage the leadership skills of potential and current leaders by providing an atmosphere that stimulates and fosters diverse viewpoints, resulting in innovative answers to the critical questions facing our community. The program strives to create awareness and to connect leaders with issues; it is not an academic leadership training program. Leadership League City includes community immersion, leadership training, and educating participants in "how things work" in our community and our county. Leadership League City offers learning opportunities in an atmosphere that stimulates creative thinking and encourages participants to work together to utilize both new and proven tools to meet the challenges of today and to prepare for tomorrow.

    Leadership League City is designed to provide the participant:

    • An awareness of community needs, challenges and opportunities, and
    • An opportunity to promote and establish relationships and share resources with other community volunteers and leaders, and
    • The challenge to examine, practice and develop leadership skills and techniques

    The Leadership League City is a nine-month program, January through September offered to members of the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce as well as nonmembers. The sessions start with a full day retreat at the Lakewood Yacht Club. The opening retreat is followed by five one-day sessions covering criminal justice, diversity and inclusion, economic development/infrastructure, health and social services, municipal/county government. The success of each Leadership League class lies in the commitment of each participant not only to the program but also to the class. Therefore, participation and attendance at each session is essential.

    Participants missing any of the following will be unable to continue enrollment or graduate from the program:

    • Any portion of the Opening Retreat, County Government, or Ending Retreat
    • More than two one-day sessions or 16 total hours

    Class sessions are generally scheduled on the first or second Wednesday of each month. A tentative schedule of program dates is enclosed.

    A word from our Moderator
    Thank you for the opportunity to expand leadership in our community. Everyone influences others. Whenever your life connects with other people you exert some type of influence. As a participant in this program, our leadership influencers will learn influence that could be profound in the growth of themselves and others. These Influencers will be studying the content noted below. John Maxwell teaches, “Everything you do– at home, at work, or at play—has an impact on the lives around you.” We have fun in this program, but we study serious change maker content. I believe no matter what one’s goals are in life, they can achieve them faster, they can be more effective and the contribution they make can be longer lasting if they learn to develop and truly understand their influence and gifts to others. If you have any questions, let me know.
    In service,
