Leadership Dubuque begins September 2022

Leadership Dubuque promotes civic responsibility, encourages community involvement, and connects professional leaders to encourage positive growth within the business community.

Leadership Dubuque allows individuals to acquire community knowledge, develop leadership skills, and network with other professionals and entrepreneurs across multiple business sectors.

Chamber member employees are eligible for the program. In addition, small business owners, managers, elected officials, lawyers, builders, doctors, etc. qualify and are encouraged to join the program.

Leadership Dubuque is a terrific way to learn more about our community resources, government, businesses, and educational opportunities, along with the impact of economic development on the community.

Additionally, it's a fun and effective way to establish and build relationships with a diverse group of business professionals. Ultimately, it's a step towards enriching the quality of life and shaping the future of Dubuque and the Tri-States.

Don't Delay your decision: Applications are due by COB Friday, September 9, 2022!
