Leading The Way For Tomorrow

Since 1970, Leadership Tampa has introduced its class members to major facets of the greater Tampa community through an intensive nine-month course. Founded by the Tampa Bay Chamber, Leadership Tampa’s members participate in educational sessions, tours and candid conversations with community leaders. Topics including law enforcement, education, social services, the environment, economic development and the arts, just to name a few! These program days challenge members to see their community as they never have before. To enhance the program day experience, class members are required to participate in a law enforcement ride-a-long as well as a teacher shadowing day.

Members of Leadership Tampa are business/professional people who hold leadership positions within their companies or organizations. Additionally, they have demonstrated a concern for community issues and volunteered their time with service and professional organizations. Leadership Tampa is committed to having a diverse and dynamic class.

Leadership Tampa members meet every other week for briefings, tours, seminars and hands-on learning. In addition, the class participates in an Opening Retreat and a Tallahassee Retreat. The Leadership Tampa program agendas bring in top-level business, civic, and government leaders for an interactive and behind the scenes look at Tampa.

Applications for the Leadership Tampa Class of 2021 have been postponed, and we will provide an update soon.
