Leadership High Point (2)
Businesses can reach their highest potential, so our community can reach new heights.
Leadership High Point is the premier program for creating community leaders in High Point. It has been proudly hosted by Business High Point - Chamber of Commerce since 1982. Leadership High Point develops its participants into community leaders through nine day-long class sessions comprised of experiential tours of local and regional businesses, leadership development activities with certified professionals, volunteer service, and networking. Graduates of Leadership High Point have become top-level executives, city council members, board members, business owners and much more. Leadership High Point exposes its participants to many facets of High Point including furniture, education, history, environment, regionalism, health care, government, communications and volunteerism. As a result, graduates become ambassadors for the city and the High Point Chamber by igniting excitement for all that is happening in the community to their family, friends, peers, co-workers and guests.
To further increase the community involvement and awareness of participants, each participant completes five extra curricular activities and contributes to the class project, which must meet a community need and be sustainable after graduation.
