Leadership Institute

About the Program

The Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute strives to provide Greenville-Pitt County with an enduring source of diverse leaders who are prepared and committed to serving the community.  During the eight-month program, participants get an in-depth view of community issues, develop leadership skills necessary to assume leadership roles, and are exposed to community involvement opportunities.  Participants study the qualities that make an effective leader, analyze individual leadership roles, and develop personal leadership styles and skills.  The program will open your eyes to new challenges and opportunities and the role you can play in shaping the future of our community and region.

Through hands-on experience, participants fully explore topics such as: education, government and law, arts and culture, economic development, health care, business and industry, and media.  The program culminates with a graduation ceremony and the unveiling of the class project.  Once graduated, participants become alumni of the program and continue their impact on the Greenville-Pitt County community.

The Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute has trained and graduated over 925 civic leaders since its inception in 1983.
