About Us

Leadership Cherokee Mission


Leadership Cherokee is a program of the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, which seeks out existing and emerging leaders from diverse background and offers them an educational experience to expose them to various aspects of the community. 



What is Leadership Cherokee?


Leadership Cherokee is a program of the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce and is designed to prepare and build upon leadership resources within our county.  Each class will be comprised of leaders and emerging leaders in our county. Includes great business networking opportunities.

If Cherokee County is to achieve its potential, the people must be aware of the social, economic, educational and governmental needs of the community.  The participants profit from getting to know each other and from the formal and informal exchange of ideas and experiences.  They gain knowledge from the overall program on many subjects, thus preparing them for a more active leadership role in the community. 


Class Sessions Include, but not limited to: Orientation/Team Building    Leadership Skills Government      Community Service Economic Development/Industry   Tourism Law & Justice      Infrastructure Education      Agriculture Healthcare      Media 


What is expected from participants?


Over the seven-month long program, Leadership Cherokee Participants are required to attend and participate in an orientation, five class sessions, graduation luncheon, and participate in the planning and executing of a Class Community Project.  While we encourage participants to attend all classes of the program, a maximum of one absence will be permitted throughout the year to graduate.
