Leadership Idaho Falls


Ever wanted to go behind the scenes at the county jail or tour the Anheuser-Busch plant? Ever wondered what people work on at the Idaho National Laboratory in addition to nuclear projects? The Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class gives participants just that. 

The class gives participants valuable information on the inner-workings of the greater Idaho Falls community. The Leadership Class is a nine-month program, meeting the second Wednesday of each month, October through June, and provides a forum for participants to engage in the following activities:

  • Site visits showing behind-the-scenes perspectives on key businesses, organizations, and programs
  • Networking with community leaders and business people to understand key issues in the community
  • Working as a team to research, plan, and execute community service projects

Through Leadership, participants are encouraged to become more involved in addressing the challenges and issues in our community and learning the role they can play in ensuring the current and future success of the East Idaho region.


The cost is $550 for chamber members, $650 for non-chamber members


  • Must be 18 years old or older.
