What is The Chamber Leadership Program?
The Leadership program of Medford & Jackson County creates in its class participants a comprehensive and objective awareness of our community in action. The program fosters commitment to our region and develops leaders to meet the demands of the future. Since its inception in 1983, more than 1000 people have graduated from this distinguished and popular program, many of which are now prominent and influential leaders in the Rogue Valley. Many of the opportunities available to this group are exclusive to the Leadership Program and not open to the general public.
