Leadership Connect of West Central Indiana (Formerly Terre Haute Young Leaders) hosts nearly 30 events every year. These include educational events with our monthly luncheons, panel events and our networking events along with other small group meetups and volunteer opportunities.
Terre Haute Young Leaders began in 2006 under the leadership of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce focusing on preserving, protecting and promoting a business-friendly environment for the community’s young professionals.
Since that time LC has raised more than $60,000 and hosted a number of community events including Bark In The Park, Dueling Pianos and our most recent Annual Leadership Conference.
The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce believes in the importance of retaining talent for local businesses. The Leadership Connect committee is a professional development program of the chamber that aims to support local talent and provide them with professional development, networking opportunities and ways to get connected in the community. From educational seminars to social networking activities, we work to connect with local professionals, local leaders and initiate their involvement in the local business community. Our mission is to motivate area professionals to become more engaged in our community.
We are committed to providing an atmosphere for area professionals and leaders to gather and network. We want to encourage relationship building between professionals who might not otherwise meet in standard professional circles.
As a member of Leadership Connect, you’ll have opportunities to grow professionally and advance your career through interactive programs, roundtables and panel discussions with local business leaders and government officials.
LC and the Chamber of Commerce recognize the opportunity for local leaders to become more involved in our community in several ways. Together, we are dedicated to identifying and facilitating those opportunities. As area aspiring leaders and professionals of the next generation, our members provide a crucial voice right here in the Wabash Valley.
