About Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay

Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay is a young professional leadership program of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce designed for emerging leaders ages 21 to 35. Stemming from an initiative to recruit and retain talent in the Greater Tampa Bay Area, the Chamber’s Board of Directors approved the idea in 2003 and Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay was launched in May 2004. 
 
Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay works to impact the business community across the region by providing professional development, networking, and community outreach opportunities for young professionals, as well as impacting public policy affecting the Tampa Bay business community. 
 
With the vision of becoming the premier young professional program in the country, Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay’s mission is to support, cultivate and attract emerging leaders, ages 21 to 35, by providing access to business resources, educational opportunities, and community partnerships in an effort to enhance the Greater Tampa Area.
