Leadership Collier was formed by the chamber in 1988 to develop a network of informed citizens prepared to assume leadership roles in our community. The chamber believes knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership. Consequently, the primary objective of Leadership Collier is to educate local business leaders about the societal and economic challenges facing the community today.
