What is Tempe Leadership?

Since 1985, more than 800 diverse, dedicated individuals have participated in the Tempe Leadership Program. As a program of and in partnership with the Tempe Chamber of Commerce Foundation, our focus is to bring together like-minded individuals in the community to engage and challenge one another, learn more about the ins and outs of Tempe and, most importantly, make a real difference in our community. Tempe Leadership alumni are well represented on local boards and commissions, routinely serve elected office, and volunteer time and energy to the community – together creating lasting legacies.

Tempe Leadership strives to:

  • Create a strong, resilient web of community leaders
  • Develop and mentor individuals to fulfill formal community leadership roles
  • Seek positive solutions to real community problems
  • Strengthen our community for now and in future generations
  • Support the development of youth leaders
  • Involve others in our community in volunteer, charitable, and civic efforts
  • Build an inclusive, connected, and vital hometown
