Leadership Utah

Leadership Utah, the Salt Lake Chamber’s signature leadership program, is an exclusive experience for mid-and upper-level management professionals to gain insight into the opportunities and challenges facing our state and at the same time become more engaged leaders. Over a year, the class of public and private sector participants will expand their network, hear from key community leaders, and learn how they can best support our ever-changing society.

CURRICULUM

The program runs September 2021 through July 2022 and features ten monthly classes (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.), plus a graduation luncheon in July. Each area topic is examined in-depth by experts in that particular field. Participants will gain access to information that is not readily available through other sources.
