“Participating in Leadership Torrance (LT) is the best investment of time to get to know Torrance! I walked away from the program with an understanding of the local business, culture, civic and social service communities and got to know the leaders in each of these areas. Though the program has limited space each year, participating in LT is a must for everyone who wants to play an active role in Torrance and meet like-minded leaders,” emphasizes Belma Demirovic Chinchoy, the Director of the Leadership Torrance program.
Applications are closing soon for this exclusive initiative by the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce. The transformative six-month journey, running from January to July and limited to 25 participants, combines engaging tours, insightful guest speakers, and a captivating expedition to the State Capitol in Sacramento, culminating in a grand graduation ceremony.
With a rich history spanning four decades, LT attracts top-tier professionals and community leaders eager to expand their networks and make a lasting impact. As the Chamber’s flagship program, LT exemplifies its steadfast commitment to nurturing leadership skills and translating them into tangible actions.
Prospective participants are urged to seize the opportunity, as the application deadline for the class of 2024 is December 31st. Under the dynamic leadership of Director Belma Demirovic Chinchoy and Co-Directors Karen Pryor and Lisa Robinson, LT offers a meticulously crafted curriculum featuring half-day and day-long workshops, immersive tours, and insightful visits.

Entering its fifth decade, LT remains a hallmark experience, offering exclusive insights into Torrance’s local business landscape, culture, and civic and social service communities.
