Corona Chamber

Applications are now open!

Since the 1980’s, the CORONA Chamber has offered programs that strengthen the community by empowering local leaders in expanding their knowledge of the vast resources within the greater CORONA region while building meaningful relationships with a skilled cohort of diverse leaders and extending their involvement on behalf of the community. This program is called Executive Leadership Roundtable or ELR for short.

ELR is a 10-month program that provides participants a “behind-the-scenes” look at a variety of industries through guided tours throughout the region including public safety, healthcare, education, manufacturing, government, military and more; facilitated workshops with policy makers, regional influencers, and industry experts on the region’s economic and cultural vitality; and an opportunity to conceptualize, design and implement a community impact project.

The 2022-2023 program started in September 2022 and will conclude in May 2023. The application period for the 2023-2024 is currently open. All applications are due by 5pm on Friday, July 21st 2023.

"The Executive Leadership Roundtable through the Corona Chamber of Commerce has been an awesome experience! The opportunity to learn about Corona’s history and the opportunity to get behind the scenes VIP level exposure to companies, city operations, educational and military installations was truly an invaluable experience. I have made lifelong connections and friends and feel blessed to have participated in ELR 2018-2019. I highly recommend this program!!! - Kristina Stracke, Kaiser Permanente
