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.

Each year, the ELR program participants select a community impact project. The ELR Class of 2024 are focusing their efforts on the transformation of the "Parent Center" within the Corona-Norco Unified School District. Specifically, their focus lies on renovating and redesigning a crucial area known as "The Closet." This space serves as a resource for families in need, particularly homeless and foster youth residing in Corona, providing them with clothing and shoes. The project's objective is to revamp this area, giving it the ambiance of a boutique shop, while ensuring that it is well-stocked with new clothing and new footwear, with tags attached.

Prior years' community impact projects include: A manufacturing mentorship event for the City's youth; A Pathway of Hope and Healing in Santana Park; Foster Care outreach and mentorship to high school students aging out of the foster care system; Remodeling of American Legion Post 742 building that was 70 years old; Upgrading new equipment for the USO facility at March Air Reserve Base, and many more.

"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
