The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce opens nominations for the Leadership Chattanooga class of 2020-21. 
 
This 10-month leadership development program allows local professionals opportunities to learn more about and engage with the community where they live and work. Monthly meetings explore various aspects of leadership and challenges facing the community. Class members also receive additional leadership training through experiential learning opportunities including a police ride along, community service projects and networking, including meeting with state leaders in Nashville. 
 
A maximum of 40 people participate in Leadership Chattanooga each year, selected on their own merits through an application process conducted by the Leadership Chattanooga Selection Committee.
 
The Committee evaluates candidates based on:
 
• Sincere commitment, motivation and interest;
• Demonstrated dedication through past community activities;
• Interest in seeking public office or volunteering for a board or other key leadership role; and
• Potential advancement to top leadership positions.
