RMLA Community Project
The Robert Mayer Leadership Academy has been a fixture of the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce for fifteen years.
This annual 10-month academy provides professionals with opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of local government,
public safety, education, and health care systems as well as the city’s business infrastructure, economic climate, and social
uniqueness. Through panel presentations and learning sessions by community leaders and subject matter experts, the academy
presents a wide spectrum of views rather than advocating specific programs or particular solutions.
As part of the academy year, participants are required to complete projects that improve and/or enhance the life of Huntington
Beach residents. The goal of the project component is to further develop the participants’ leadership, teamwork, and
community trusteeship abilities. Academy participants are committed to contributing their time and talents to support projects
in the community.
This class invites any community-based organizations (CBOs) in Huntington Beach to submit a Community Project Application.
Academy class members will select up to four projects that clearly provide benefit to community members. Projects completed
in other communities include median beautification, a community storytelling event, caring for aging parents workshop,
building a sustainable community garden, community murals, and a career forum for high school youth. Other project ideas may include various fundraising efforts, creating a memorial, or starting an annual tradition.
All projects must be completed in four months. All funds needed to complete the project must either be fundraised as part of the project or covered by the selected organization. Applications received by members in good standing of the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce receive priority review. For consideration, please complete and submit the application using the form below no later than Monday, Jan. 7, 2019.
