Connecting and Developing Our Future Leaders

Through the Chamber's leadership programs and events, we are building a stronger St. Pete by developing the community that makes it thrive. Investing in our future leaders is vital to our mutual prosperity and at the core of everything we do.

Leadership St. Pete® (LSP)

Leadership St. Pete (LSP) stands as one of the oldest leadership programs of its kind in the nation. Our mission is clear: to nurture a community brimming with informed, passionate leaders. Each year, we select a diverse array of individuals spanning various industries and career stages to embark on an immersive six-month journey featuring leadership retreats, educational seminars, and an impactful civic-engagement service project. LSP offers an exclusive look at the most challenging issues and opportunities facing our region while equipping participants with the knowledge, resources, and networks to shape our city's future.

Our commitment to St. Petersburg extends far beyond the duration of our program. LSP alumni have access to ongoing educational opportunities, exclusive events, and a strong network for continued growth.

LSP Community Project

A key component of the LSP program is giving back to our community. Each LSP class partners with a local non-profit organization to build awareness, fundraise, and work hands-on at the nonprofit’s site to rehab a physical location in need of some tender loving care. It’s up to the class to organize roles and figure out how to best accomplish this task! Learn more about the LSP Community Project.
