The leadership development program is a part of the Leadership Center’s suite of offerings at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.

“This program is built to provide advancing leaders an opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and community resources in a meaningful way, while enhancing their leadership skills,” said Andrea Mersmann, leadership programs manager for the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “The unique relationships established in each class allow participants to not only expand their networks, but create invaluable professional friends invested in impacting regional development.”

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber has a history of providing leadership development beginning with the launch of Leadership Cincinnati USA more than 40 years ago. Since then, more than 3,500 leaders have participated in the chamber’s cohort programs expanding leadership competencies, business connections, and their loyalty to the region.
