About Us

Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) is a nonprofit organization that brings together leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors to build and steward a vibrant, interconnected community.

Since 1983, our unique programs have prepared more than 2,000 adult and youth leaders for a lifetime commitment to doing public good. Our participants and alumni are engaged in improving our region because they have deepened their civic commitment and awareness of diverse issues and industries.

LPBC offers up-and-coming and more-established leaders a unique opportunity to be part of a group that has come together to:

  • Enhance their personal and professional leadership skills
  • Understand the complex issues facing Palm Beach County through open, thought-provoking, and balanced discussion
  • Participate in civic work that aims to serve the greater good of our community
  • Build relationships with other leaders who find solutions to the challenges facing our county.

Each year, LPBC delivers four core leadership programs that prepare high-achieving professionals as well as well-engaged high school students to unite as leaders to build a better community.

Together, our participants spend up to a year together, traveling across the county with exclusive access to courtrooms, newsrooms, schools, farms, major businesses and to the top leaders running the industries that drive our economy. Along the way, they get educated about our region, work on meaningful local projects, and build lasting bonds as a group.

Once they complete the programs, our promising leaders are part of a growing alumni network that shapes the curriculum for the new classes of participants and works in the community to tackle issues affecting all of our lives.


We connect leaders from diverse backgrounds, sectors and industries.


We collaborate to strengthen the knowledge and understanding of Palm Beach County. 


We are a catalyst for positive change for life.

Nothing I have ever done has given me the sense of ownership, the quality of friends, or the value to my business than I get out of my involvement with Leadership Palm Beach County.
