LGM & LGM-Youth

Training the leaders of tomorrow, that’s the goal of Leadership Greater Madison (LGM). The advanced leadership training program teaches the knowledge, skills and relationship-building needed to inspire leadership to make a positive difference in the community. LGM is for qualified individuals living and working in the Dane County area. It is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, nonpartisan educational program of the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce Foundation

Leadership Greater Madison-Youth (LGM-Youth) is a civic leadership development program for high school sophomores in Dane County. LGM-Youth launched in February 2015 with a pilot class of 18 students from 11 school districts. Today participants come from nearly every school district in Dane County. These future leaders are continuously finding ways to become active in their community. To learn more about LGM-Youth, contact Program Director Lynn Wood at


What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.
