An exciting opportunity awaits you through the Broome Leadership Institute Program. The program will be entering its 33rd year as a highly respected community leadership training and development program offered through the Greater Binghamton Education Outreach Program (GBEOP) – an affiliate organization of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce.
The Broome Leadership Institute was created under the belief that the future prosperity of a community lies in its people. The goal of the program is to identify people like you who are interested in playing a key role in making Greater Binghamton the best that it can be.
The benefits are tremendous: you will meet key decision-makers face-to-face; you will gain a broader understanding of the issues affecting life in our region; you will learn new skills and make invaluable professional contacts; you will gain the knowledge, experience and contacts needed to make a positive difference in our community; and you may have some fun along the way.
Tuition is $1,600 for Chamber members, $1,200 for non-profit Chamber members and $2,500 for non-members. and covers all costs associated with the program. Please submit a $100 deposit with your application (payable to GBEOP) - it will be returned if you do not participate in this year's program.

All applications are subject to confidential evaluation.
Below you will find an application form, three reference forms, and an informational brochure with this year's program dates and topics. Please block out those full days in your calendar now to assure 75%+ attendance. Please forward the three Reference Information Forms right away to three persons who know you well enough to make a detailed reference. This will give them time to prepare a reference and return it to the selection committee by July 31. All applicants will be interviewed in August.
