About Leadership DeKalb

A respected leadership development program in DeKalb County, the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce founded Leadership DeKalb in 1986 to educate community leaders and to address issues facing the growing population.  In 1994, Leadership DeKalb became an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Since then, more than 1,500 community leaders have completed the program.  Graduates of the program include CEOs of top public and private companies, as well as a large number of DeKalb’s elected officials, educators, judges, entrepreneurs, volunteers and nonprofit leaders.

Leadership DeKalb convenes and connects leaders, informs them on matters vital to the county and enhances their leadership skills. This strengthened pipeline of talent immerses in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, thereby advancing quality of life in DeKalb County.

With a focus on the entire county, we position current and emerging leaders – reflecting the area’s rich diversity – to unite, commit and act to make DeKalb County a premier place to live, work and enjoy life.  Class members learn about history, diversity, government, justice, arts and culture, education, health and economic development in the county.  Classmates and alumni gain access to other leaders in all of these sectors.  With over 1,500 alumni, we facilitate long-term leadership sustainability.
