Members of Leadership Tampa are business professionals who hold mid- to upper-level management positions.  In addition, they have demonstrated concern for community issues and have been active volunteers in service organizations.  The selection process is rigorous and requires review by an appointed selection committee.  Many graduates of the program have gone on to take expanded leadership roles in the community as well as in their own organizations.

The Leadership Tampa year begins in September and runs through May with members meeting every other week for briefings and seminars.  Each Leadership Tampa program brings in top-level business, civic and government leaders for panel discussions and question and answer sessions. Topics covered include healthcare, education, law enforcement, the environment, economic development, government and other important community issues.
