Executive Leadership Roundtable

Promoting the Community

This committee heads an annual program designed to prepare selected applicants for positions of public service. Through classroom instruction and on-site training, participants in the Executive Leadership Roundtable program learn about the opportunities and challenges that face the region and are given behind-the-scenes information on key topics such as homeland security. They are also given the opportunity to interact with current political, community and business leaders, and each class selects a community service project.

At the end of the program, participants will have developed relationships with a variety of professionals and civic leaders. Designed for those in upper management, graduates of the Executive Leadership Roundtable program are often considered for a commission with the City and other appointments.

The next program will begin in September 2021 and conclude in June 2022. The application period for the 2021-2022 ELR has closed.

ELR Class of 2021 participants chose to provide foster youth with the awareness of what amazing contacts, development programs, trade schools and colleges they have right here at home. They organized a “Day of Hope” event that took place on July 20th. Click here to read a full article about this project.

"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
