Leadership Tri-County is our flagship, tuition-based program.​ The program is administered through the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc. Since its inception in 1993, the program has prepared more than 200 community members for leadership positions in the tri-county area. Each Leadership class is comprised of individuals who have been selected for their potential to expand their involvement in the development of the tri-county area. Each member has made a demonstrated commitment to leadership in both their community and place of employment. These individuals represent business and industry, government, the arts, volunteer and social organizations, education, professional groups, labor, hospitals, and utilities.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Committee of the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to not offer the Leadership Tri-County program for the 2020-2021 program year. Due to these circumstances, and as a direct result of this decision, the Executive Committee is eliminating the Director position for the program resulting in the unfortunate need to layoff Jennifer O’Donnell.

We look forward to relaunching the program and securing a full class to start the program in September of 2021 that will graduate in June of 2022.


To sustain community participation and involvement by training and providing new and emerging leaders with the expertise to serve on nonprofit boards.
