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 application period for the 2023-2024 class is currently closed. However, the application for the 2024-2025 program will open January 2024.

The 2023-2024 program starts in September 2023 and will conclude in June 2024

"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
