Building Leaders of St. Pete Since 1970
As one of the oldest leadership programs in America and a division of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Leadership St. Pete® seeks to identify, recruit and develop leaders who represent the diversity of our local community. Through a dynamic, intensive, interactive, six-month experience, Leadership St. Pete is customized to provide a curriculum that enhances community acumen to develop the future leaders who will assume roles in the Chamber and other community organizations.
Applications become available online at the end of the summer for the following year.
“Of the many organizations I have been involved with, Leadership St. Pete was the single most important in terms of helping me to develop an understanding of our community and introducing me to the people who have shaped our city.”
– Rick Baker, LSP '85
Former Mayor, City of St. Petersburg
