Discover the Leader in You! The Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce works to promote an ideal business environment which supports growth and total community development. We believe that sustainable growth and development starts with an individual and grows from there to encompass an organization. Leadership Sumter is a class that is geared to help you lay the fundamental bedrock of leadership so you will be equipped to build your career and emerge as a community leader.
The program is a nine month class that meets once a month from September until May and kicks off with a mandatory, overnight retreat in Columbia. Sessions consist of book discussions, tours, Q&A sessions, and interactive activities. The purpose of this class isn't just to foster leadership, but to equip the next generation of leaders so that they have the tools and knowledge necessary to build their business and enhance Sumter.
Leadership Sumter is a program that is offered to Chamber Members ONLY with participants required to either reside or work in Sumter County.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2019-2020 Leadership Sumter Class.
