The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of Leadership Saratoga, is dedicated to the development of leaders who will serve their communities today and in the future.

Leadership Saratoga selects up to twenty-four individuals each year with demonstrated motivation, commitment and potential and provides them with additional skills, knowledge and networks to effectively serve in volunteer leadership capacities.

This award-winning program which started in 1985, has made its mark on Saratoga County. Graduates serve on the Boards of Directors of 135 nonprofit organizations from Corinth to Clifton Park. Sixty graduates have been elected to local Boards of Education, Town Boards, City Councils, the County Board of Supervisors, County Planning Board and various political committees.

Participants will receive exposure to critical issues affecting life in Saratoga County as well as hands-on involvement in leadership development. Class members meet the decision makers and community leaders who address not only facts, but perspectives, problems and potentials in very interactive sessions.

After graduation from the program, participants can become involved in an active Alumni Association. The Association enables graduates to continue to make connections at informal gatherings, further their education in community leadership by attending seminars, and help raise funds for scholarships for future program participants.
