Nominate or Apply for Leadership Jackson
Each Spring, the Leadership Jackson Alumni Association’s Board of Directors begin the process of identifying potential candidates for the new class of Leadership Jackson.
Nominations are submitted by employers who have identified a rising star within their business or organization that may benefit from participation in the program, or, if you are the primary decision maker you may self-nominate.
If you are the primary decision maker or a business owner, you may nominate yourself or have a peer or Leadership Jackson alumnus to nominate you for the program. If you are not the primary decision maker, we strongly suggest you have your immediate supervisor nominate you for the program due to the time commitment and cost involved to participate. (Check into the policy for your particular company/organization for approval to make sure you follow protocol.) Discuss your interest in applying for Leadership Jackson, how it can benefit your employer and then have your supervisor complete your Nomination Form.
Only one application will be accepted per company due to the large number of applicants. Applicants must be employed with a member of the Jackson Chamber.
What happens after I am nominated?
After submitting an online application, a peer group of Leadership Jackson alumni will interview all applicants from mid-July through mid-August. Those selected for the upcoming year’s class will be notified immediately after interviews and selections are completed.
When do you meet and what are the topics discussed?
Leadership Jackson meets weekly on Wednesdays beginning in September through mid-December. A two-day opening retreat is mandatory to participate in the program. Please check the Program Schedule included on this site.
How do I nominate someone or apply?
Review the nomination process, fill out our nomination form and send it in. Only one application will be accepted per company due to the large number of applicants. Applicants must be employed with a member of the Jackson Chamber. Forms can be completed online beginning June 1st.
