Leadership Center

Alumni Network

The Leadership Center’s Alumni Network provides our 4,300+ graduates with ongoing leadership development, multi-directional networking, civic education, and community engagement opportunities.

What is the Alumni Network?

Every Chamber leadership program graduate is an alum. Through the Leadership Center Alumni Network, you will receive newsletters, stay connected through the Alumni Network LinkedIn group, and attend alumni exclusive events.


Alumni+ is a membership program that takes your alumni experience to the next level. It enables you the opportunities for further networking and connection, continued leadership development, inside look on big initiatives happening within the region, and the ability to give back to futures leaders.

As an Alumni+ member, you are part of an expanded community of other Leadership Center graduates. Benefits to Alumni+ include:

Alumni+ Members Receive Additional Benefits

Alumni Chats Opportunities

Connect with smaller groups of 5-12 alumni from different programs and backgrounds. We assign the groups and you bring the energy!

Scholarship Contributions

Afford the opportunity for someone else to experience growth. This is a very important reason to join Alumni+. Leadership Center programs enable you o learn more about your community, grow as an individual and professional, and expand your network. A portion of your tuition towards Alumni+ goes towards the Cincinnati Chamber Leadership Program Scholarship Fund. The fund helps leaders (small businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profits, those self-paying, etc.) participate in the leadership programs who could not otherwise afford full tuition.

$100 Annual Fee for Alumni+ Members

The annual fee for Alumni+ is $100. All funds contribute directly to the Alumni Network through the scholarship fund and Alumni Network activities and programs. Membership is good for a full year from signing up. You will be contacted when it is time to renew.
