The 2022 Class of Leadership Utah concluded today with graduation ceremonies celebrating the completion of the Salt Lake Chamber’s signature leadership program. Leadership Utah is an exclusive experience for mid- and upper-level management professionals to gain insight into the opportunities and challenges facing our state and become more engaged leaders.
“The graduates from Leadership Utah represent the next generation of business leaders who will be tasked with solving economic and community challenges,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance. “These leaders now have a new strength, lens and network to ensure a prosperous future. The Salt Lake Chamber is honored to associate with these talented individuals who represent the best of Utah’s business community.”
Over the last year, the Leadership Utah cohort of public and private sector participants expanded their network, heard from key community leaders, and learned how best to support our ever-changing society.
