The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to making our area a dynamic place to work, live, and play, and that is why we are so strongly committed to our Leadership Academy Program. This six-course program (limited to only 25 participants) is created for those who are interested in helping propel our area forward and to contribute to the progress of the LAX Coastal community. Leadership Academy aims to engage emerging leaders, inspire established leaders, and develop lasting professional connections with fellow participants.
From December to May, Leadership Academy participants will engage in monthly one-day courses designed to educate, evaluate, and enhance personal growth. This program will help develop and nurture leadership skills, all while exploring the local political landscape and rich history of the area.
These courses will familiarize business leaders with information regarding the inner workings of our government, as well as key economic areas, including LAX and Marina del Rey. The program provides participants the rare opportunity to meet and interact with political officials, public safety officers, and industry leaders to learn about the various issues that affect the LAX Coastal area and Los Angeles as a whole. More key curriculum includes: information on economic development, communication styles and tactics, government policy, DEIA (diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility), homelessness, environmental consciousness, civic involvement, and much more.
