Leadership Pensacola (LeaP) was founded in the fall of 1982 with the first graduating class in 1983. The program was established with a goal of ensuring the community’s pool of talented leaders would be continually renewed. To date, more than 1,500 people have completed the Leadership Pensacola program – managed by the Pensacola Chamber Foundation – and have acquired the skills, passion and connections to work effectively as community trustees.
Participants accepted into LeaP are involved in a balanced combination of retreats, day-long seminars and community projects. The program is refined annually by a committed group of LeaP alumni. Area decision-makers offer their time and expertise while tours and interactive exercises are built into each day.
