The Leadership Murray organization was established with the assistance of the Murray-Calloway Chamber of Commerce in 1983. Leadership Murray uses the community as a classroom to develop leaders who will effectively serve our community. The programs are designed to help a diverse group of potential, emerging, and existing community leaders acquire an understanding of the strengths and challenges of the Murray-Calloway County area, and the skills necessary to motivate and engage others in collaborative efforts to address them. The curriculum for each session changes based on the needs of the community for that specific topic.
- Participation in Leadership Murray is open to persons living, working, or playing in Murray-Calloway County.
- Attendance at the overnight retreat, Frankfort trip and monthly sessions is mandatory.

CLASS SESSIONS INFORMATION
This program runs every other year unless we see a large interest in participating. Class sessions will be held on the day of the Chamber’s Business@Breakfast meetings. If you know now that you cannot attend the session on any of these dates, please consider holding your application for a future Leadership Murray class when you can be fully committed.
