  • HUNTSVILLE LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE

    The Huntsville-Walker County Chamber of Commerce PROUDLY sponsors the Huntsville Leadership Institute (HLI) and graduates an average of 20 individuals each year who are eager to serve their community with the knowledge they learned throughout the prior 9 months!  HLI was established to foster the development of community leaders from all segments of the Huntsville/Walker County area, specifically to:

    ·Promote leadership as a public responsibility
    ·Identify and develop new and emerging leader candidates for community service and improved business practices
    ·Encourage communication between current and future leaders
    ·Fill key community leadership positions with graduates
    ·Develop a large, active group of graduates

    While HLI focuses on leadership, the program also focuses on Community Awareness, Networking and Relationships!  Participants visit various businesses and organizations throughout the year; learning what makes our community unique to those around us.   Relationships are formed instantly and many last a lifetime.  Networking is a key part of the experience as well, creating the opportunity for participants to broaden their business relationships as well as personal relationships.

    Applications are available now.  Click here for info.  Deadline to apply is August 20, 2021.  If you have any questions, please call HLI Coordinator Laura Green at 936-295-8113.

    "HLI helped build our foundation of understanding and broadened our perspective, but it also took us down the path of self-discovery."  - Kirstie Legerski, HLI Class #34; 2017-2018 HLI Chair

    "I think the HLI program is fabulous for networking; but, also very beneficial for developing leaders to run for public office or just get more involved with the community.  It helps people find a good fit for their area of interest in serving the community."  -Patsy Collins, HLI Class #35
