They represent the Chamber at all sponsored functions, and help recruit and retain members.

    For more than three decades, the Chamber has presented Leadership Hopkins County, a yearly class designed to identify, educate, and inspire leaders to serve our community.

    Leadership Hopkins County graduates are expected to be positive role models; active community leaders who are open-minded to change and innovation; able to utilize networking skills; educated on current community issues; and committed to effecting community improvement.

    The goals of the program are to: Familiarize emerging leaders with one another and with the community's current business and civic leadership; provide these leaders with an understanding of major challenges and opportunities facing Hopkins County; stimulate increased participation and commitment in the community; create opportunities to increase knowledge and skills in community leadership; offer increased contacts and broader communication networks; and provide greater access and participation in addressing community needs.

    The Leadership Hopkins County program is administered by a Board of Directors comprised of past graduates of the program. The program includes:

    • An overnight retreat facilitated by Lynn Miller Pease, CEO of Leadership Evansville. During the retreat participants discover their inherent leadership traits and how to develop them for the good of the community. The Chamber gratefully acknowledges the support of Fifth Third Bank, the sponsor of our annual Leadership Hopkins County retreat, which sets the tone and pace for the yearly program.
    • Monthly Program Days organized to educate participants about county government, industries, health care, education, and other vital programs and services.
    • A two-day visit to Frankfort to learn about state government
    • A graduation luncheon


    The class is also expected to work together as a whole or in teams to organize, perform, and complete community service projects during the Leadership year.
