  • 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 develop the leadership skills of potential and current leaders by providing a stimulating atmosphere that fosters diverse viewpoints, resulting in innovative answers to the critical questions facing our community. The program strives to create awareness and 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

    • An opportunity to promote and establish relationships and share resources with other community volunteers and leaders

    • The challenge to examine, practice and develop leadership skills and techniques

    Leadership League City is an nine-month program, January through November, exclusively offered to members of the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce. The sessions start with a full day retreat at the Lakewood Yacht Club. The opening retreat is followed by seven 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 City 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.
