LEAD Clermont Academy

We believed Peter Drucker when he said “The only things that happen naturally in organizations are friction, confusion, and under-performance. Everything else requires Leadership.”

So our focus is LEADership …leadership across a lifetime. “We call it the LEADership Continuum.”

LEADers are not born, they are developed.  No matter your age or experience we’ll teach you how to LEAD your way and how to translate those skills into your organization – businesses, social services organizations, schools, government entities, faith-based organizations, and families.

Salute to Leaders

Salute to Leaders is an annual program from the Clermont Chamber of Commerce Foundation that honors both individuals and businesses throughout the community for their contribution to Clermont County.

Past Honorees

Law Enforcement Appreciation Banquet

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week.  Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

For over 30 years the Chamber of Commerce has partnered with law enforcement agencies to present the Clermont County Law Enforcement Appreciation Banquet to show our thanks for the tremendously good acts performed by our police and citizens that are not always publicized.  This commitment is because we understand that law enforcement is critical to the health, safety and general welfare of everyone in our community.
