ANN ARBOR — Leadership A2Y, the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Regional Chamber’s leadership program will celebrate its 30th anniversary this fall.

The leadership programs from both the former Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Chambers of Commerce combined in 2010 to create Leadership A2Y, a regional program whose mission is to provide a foundation for the development of a sustainable and vital region based upon an informed and committed business community.  

The program has established itself as one of the most effective methods for learning about the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area and meeting its core leaders. The nine month curriculum provides participants with an appreciation for the complex issues facing our community. Topics include economic development, community services, education, local government, health care, justice and quality of life. Leadership also provides individuals with an opportunity to explore and enhance their own leadership skills and develop a broad network of relationships that carry on long after the program ends.

Combining improved leadership skills with new associations allows individuals to better represent their businesses, responsibly serve a deserving non-profit organization and be an energetic steward of the community. The leadership program is proud to serve individuals from a variety of industries and sectors, including business, non-profit, government and education.

Leadership A2Y is now accepting applications for the 2013-2014 year. The program application deadline is September 20, 2013.  A limited number of partial scholarships are also available. For more information about the program and the application process, please visit our website or contact Julie Kedroske at (734) 214-0109 or, or Rosalind Vaughn at (734) 214-0107 or

The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Regional Chamber is a 1,200-member community non-profit organization that actively facilitates, educates and advocates on behalf of its members through our services and programs.
