About Leadership Preble County

Fostering Community Leadership

Leadership Preble County (LPC), a transformative program fostering community leadership, is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Preble County Chamber of Commerce and the generous support of Kettering Health and the Preble County Development Partnership. Together, we are committed to empowering individuals to make meaningful contributions to our community.

The LPC program offers a comprehensive 10-month curriculum aimed at equipping local professionals with the skills and insights needed to assume leadership roles within their communities. Throughout the program, participants will convene monthly to delve into various topics vital to Preble County’s success, including its history, business landscape, workforce development, agriculture, healthcare, state and local government, infrastructure, public safety, and more. Each session will be led by local experts dedicated to sharing their expertise and insights.

Highlights of the program include an immersive overnight retreat at the Wilderness Ridge Retreat Center, tours of Henny Penny World Headquarters, Kettering Health, and an enriching field trip to the Ohio State House. Graduates of the program will be honored at our prestigious Annual Awards Gala.
