Emerging Leaders

Emerging Leaders


The Tullahoma Chamber’s young professional program that provides a platform for our next generation of leaders to build strong connections, develop leadership skills and partner with business and community leaders. 

The Emerging Leaders mission is to Engage, Educate, and Empower young business professionals in the Tullahoma Area and to aid them in becoming the future leaders for our community.

The Tullahoma Chamber provides events for EL members throughout the year to help them become more competitive in the business arena, and establish contacts through a variety of program topics, such as:

  • Latest community news and business strategies
  • Seminars featuring topics essential to your professional development
  • Partnership with a Mentor, an established, local business professional 
  • Grow relationships with business professionals and community leaders

Mentorship Matters

Influential business executives will serve as Mentors to the Emerging Leaders. The Mentors develop a one-on-one relationship with EL members, provide access to networking events, professional development seminars, and interaction with successful area businesses.
