Applying for the Leadership Engage class of 2022

Each year Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) identifies 50-55 exceptional community leaders to participate in the Leadership Engage program and utilize their leadership abilities for the long-term benefit of Palm Beach County. The selection committee strives to balance the industries, geographic location, and other factors to create a class that is truly representative of the diversity throughout Palm Beach County. While the class members do not work in the same industries, they share the following attributes:

A PASSION and personal commitment to help shape the future of Palm Beach County

Significant ACHIEVEMENT in career or community

An INTEREST in enhancing personal leadership capabilities

High standards of PERSONAL INTEGRITY

Personal COMMITMENT to educate themselves on community issues and initiatives

A DESIRE to support the continuation of leadership development in Palm Beach County

Engage class members aspire to improve our region because they have deepened their civic commitment and awareness of diverse issues and industries. Through the connections, education, and interests developed by our county’s most promising leaders, LPBC creates a lasting impact in our community. The Engage Class of 2022 will have the unique opportunity to learn how our county's industries were affected by and responded to a global pandemic, and will be able to join LPBC in helping Palm Beach County recover.

Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, the format of the opening retreat and class sessions is subject to change. Flexible payment plans are available for Engage tuition; please contact Greg at to discuss options.
