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.


The program runs September through July 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.


Individuals selected to take part in Leadership Utah will include representatives from both the private and public sectors. A maximum of 60 people will be admitted to the program.

Each candidate will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Must be a representative of an organization who is a member of the Salt Lake Chamber
  • Work experience 
  • Demonstrated community interest and engagement
  • Aspirations to serve on boards, in other leadership roles in the community, and in key positions within their organization
  • Candidates must currently hold middle- or upper-level management positions within their organizations.

Individuals will be selected through a review process. A maximum of 60 people will be admitted. Acceptance letters will be sent out by July 1, 2024 along with an invoice. Please do not send payment for the program until you have been accepted.


The fee for each participant that is accepted into Leadership Utah is $2,250 for members in good standing with the Salt Lake Chamber. The fee is to be paid in full prior to the first session. This tuition covers the cost of meals, activities, materials and program administration. *Please note, this is a members-only program.
