Executive Leadership Roundtable

Applications are now open!

Since the 1980’s, the Executive Leadership Roundtable has strengthened the community by developing local leaders in expanding their knowledge of the vast resources within the Corona region while building meaningful relationships with a skilled cohort of diverse leaders and extending their involvement on behalf of the community.

This 10-month program 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 next program will begin in September 2022 and conclude in June 2023. The application period for the 2022-2023 class is open now.

This year the ELR Class of 2022 focused their efforts to raise awareness for the prevealence and impact the drug Fentanyl is having on our society.

The ELR group engaged the community with a path through Santana Park, bringing a message of hope and healing for a threat that now claims more lives than car accidents.

The Meditation Pathway of Hope and Healing consists of 4 benches. One of Spirituality, one of Compassion, one of Life Choices and one of Remembrance.

"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
