Leadership Jackson Presenting Sponsor 2023


Leadership Jackson

Leadership Jackson's goal is simple. Create an active network of informed and concerned citizens and business professionals to guide the future of our community.

Through this Leadership program, the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce strives to develop leaders. Upon graduating the program, participants have gained the skills to use towards helping the community, their employers and themselves for the better. Throughout the program, participants are exposed to many of the vital parts of what makes a community successful.

Leadership Jackson applicants are nominated, complete an application process and are selected by the Leadership Jackson Advisory Council.

The Leadership Jackson year-long program begins with a two-day retreat in late July/early August to kick off the term. There the class members participate in team building exercises, leadership training and begin to form relationships which then set the stage for life-long friends. The Leadership Jackson program includes monthly sessions in which participants meet and interact with community leaders discussing education, public safety, economic development, tourism, health and human services, growth within a community and other important topics.

For more information on participating in future Leadership Jackson Classes, please contact the chamber, or email Melissa Britt at
