In May 2008, the first Leadership in Action class will graduate after having spent six months addressing key issues facing East Orlando. Like similar leadership development programs offered by other Chambers of Commerce, Leadership in Action is modeled after a nationwide community awareness and leadership training effort. The program identifies potential business and civic leaders and equips them with the knowledge and experience necessary to make an impact in East Orlando. Throughout the course, participants take a tour of East Orange County and address critical community issues along the way.
Leadership in Action is the only leadership program that focuses solely on the issues facing East and Southeast Orlando. Topics studied throughout the program include the environment, healthcare, education, transportation, technology, and government. Each session features behind-the-scenes tours, opportunities to interact with established community leaders and team building activities.
