What is Gilbert Leadership
Gilbert Leadership brings together individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience to develop their leadership potential.
Participants learn a great deal about their personal growth and leadership style and also gain an unparalleled amount of information about the Town of Gilbert and its community.
Gilbert Leadership is a program of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce designed to help develop our town’s current and future leaders.
Through the program, Gilbert Leadership:
* Encourages local residents to start, design, lead and deliver locally generated initiatives and projects.
* Provides structured community leadership learning programs.
* Engages active community and volunteer leaders to broaden their horizons and help them to become more effective within their communities.
* Creates and/or extends a network of community and volunteer leaders to encourage contracts and involvement through their work and lives.
Leadership candidates are required to live or work in Gilbert, possess a commitment to community involvement and personal growth, as well as have a desire to improve the Gilbert community.
Interested candidates should submit an application and then are interviewed by a selection committee. Final selection is made by the Gilbert Leadership Board of Directors.
Class members attend once a month classes, complete a series of local tours as well as complete a class service project.
