The Leadership Statesville Class of 2021-2022.

Special to Iredell Free News

The Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applicants for the 2022-2023 Leadership Statesville program.

Leadership Statesville is a nine-month program whose mission is to cultivate and connect the leadership community in Statesville and Iredell County by:

– Providing hands on leader development, education, and local connections in order to optimize participant impact in their businesses, non-profits, and the community at large.

– Enhancing growth by connecting to state and regional leadership resources and providing alumni avenues to use individual strengths and talents to benefit our local area.

A full day each month is dedicated to exploring the inner workings of the region’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, health services, and public safety. Class members have the opportunity to learn about and practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community. Included in the program is leadership training which is unique to other leadership programs.

Each year class members work together on a project that benefits the area. The Leadership Statesville class of 2021-2022 gave back to their community through the creation and implementation of a Community Garden at the Boys & Girls Club of the Piedmont.

Former Leadership Statesville graduates currently sit on various Boards of Directors throughout the city and work to serve the area in continuing to build an outstanding community.


To apply for the 2022-2023 Leadership Statesville program go to for all the details and application.
