Join the Planning Committee
To serve on the LSP PC, candidates submit a written application which is reviewed by the EC. Those selected to serve must be both active LSP Alumni Association members and active Chamber of Commerce members.
There are five (5) committees that members can choose to serve each year:
• Class Project Committee
• Finance & Sponsorship Committee
• Marketing, Outreach & Recruiting Committee
• Assessment Committee
• Selection Committee
Expectations for those serving on the PC include:
• Serving as an active mentor for at least one seminar
• Securing sponsorships in support of the seminar assigned to the member
• Active participation on one of the above mentioned committees
LSP is a volunteer run program of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce. LSP leadership is comprised of an Executive Committee (EC) and a Planning Committee (PC).
The five members of the EC are comprised of the current Chair, Chair-Elect and Immediate Past Chair of LSP, the LSP Alumni Association Representative and the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO.
PC members serve 1-year terms and may not serve more than six (6) consecutive terms. PC members who have served six (6) consecutive terms may apply again after sitting out for at least one (1) year. Approximately eight (8) PC positions shall be filled by persons who have not previously served on the PC, with priority given to graduates of the most recent class, the goal being that approximately one-third of the PC should be turned over each year. The size of the PC is determined at the discretion of the EC, but has traditionally included approximately 26 members.
