Leadership Caldwell is celebrating its 32nd class of professional leadership development. The program committee is comprised of Leadership Caldwell Alum, each with a passion for this program and a desire for it to evolve even better with each new class.

This year, the committee has created a new Statement of Purpose that embodies the updated program for 2024: Educating, developing, and empowering leaders to impact their community.

This year's session will begin with a two-day kickoff on Thursday and Friday January 11-12. The class will meet most Wednesdays, following the two-day kickoff, through April 24. Five of the sessions will be a book study that will be 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM. For the remainder of the sessions, you should plan on being in attendance from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM. 

A few of the topics covered in the program will be:
  • Personal leadership development
  • A book study
  • Economic development
  • Elected officials/local governments
  • Panel discussions with local leaders
  • Education
  • Local nonprofit organizations
The cost of participation is $795 per person for members of The Caldwell Chamber of Commerce and $1,000 for non-members. Scholarships may be available. The non-member rate will include a complementary one-year membership with the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All applications will be received and reviewed by our alumni committee.  This program is  popular and there has traditionally been a waiting list from the prior year. The alumni committee will select only 25 candidates to participate in the Class of 2024. Find the application here.
