Create Great Leaders Alumni Network

About the Network

For over 30 years, the Grand Rapids Chamber has led the region in talent development and leadership programs. The programs now include Leadership Grand Rapids, Emerging Leaders Series, Leadership Advantage, Leading Edge, LeadUp & Speak with Purpose.

The key ingredient to each of the GRC Leadership Programs is the curation of diverse groups across community, sector, belief system and identity. While each program has different objectives and take aways, they all create relationships that make our community better. We know that these connections are key to creating a thriving West Michigan for all!

Now you can continue the magic and multiply the impact by joining the Create Great Leaders Alumni Network!

Why Join

The CGL Alumni Network is intentionally planned with our over 1,500 Community Trustees in mind.

The Network exists to provide continued social connection, learning + growth through service, and opportunities for systems impact for graduates of Grand Rapids Chamber Leadership programs. Our programming is designed around our TripleS platform: Social/Service/Systems.

Joining every year keeps your information up to date and contributes key dollars to scholarships that ensure access and successful curation of cohorts.

Benefits of Joining

When you join the CGL Alumni Network, you become part of our directory and receive access to other alumni who have gone through the program. You also receive special invitations and access to curated events throughout the year. Depending on your membership level, you may qualify for free tickets as well. And, most importantly, a portion of any paid membership level will go toward scholarships for future LGR participants who need financial assistance.

So what’s stopping you? JOIN TODAY!
