Leadership Development - our mission is to grow a diverse group of leaders
who serve as a catalyst for a stronger community. We prepare
community leaders for the challenges of tomorrow.
The following leadership development programs are offered through the
Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce.
Leadership Dalton-Whitfield is the Signature leadership
program of the organization that was created and founded by community
leaders. The first program in 1986 and now has over 890 graduates.
Leadership Dalton-Whitfield Alumni Association was created as a way
to keep the graduates engaged. The association was formed in 2005
and a committee formed, which guides and directs the events and activities
of the association. Annual dues of $35 were established to help
offset the costs of events, offer scholarships to one or more participants
for the Leadership Dalton-Whitfield program and work on one or more
programs that have a meaningful impact on the community.
Emerging Leaders Institute was designed for young adults as a
leadership skills training program so that the participant may gain new
skills and knowledge about leadership. This program launched in
The Chamber of Commerce provides staff support to all of the leadership
