Leadership Ascension, recently celebrating its 17th year, is an innovative program sponsored by the Ascension Chamber of Commerce to assist in preparing emerging community leaders for leadership positions in local government, business and community affairs. This results-oriented program is directed by a committee of community leaders with the assistance of the Chamber staff and has graduated successful business owners and top government officials within the parish.
The purpose of Leadership Ascension is to provide a forum for and increase the awareness of potential leaders by giving them an intense course, which encompasses a broad scope of community concerns.
Each year the Chamber chooses 30 individuals based on an application process to participate in the 10-month program, and each participant is required to attend sessions and complete a community service project to be eligible for graduation.
