Executive Leaders Program: Class XI, Fall 2017— an innovative program on Pennsylvania politics and government by presenters who know it best, the Executive Leaders Program is an in-depth look "inside the System." Invited speakers include current and former elected officials, including governors and other statewide elected officers; administrators; Cabinet Secretaries; lobbyists; political party officials; reporters; association executives and others selected for their personal and professional knowledge of the government and political process.

Developed by former Senator and business government relations expert Earl M. Baker, Ph.D., an advisory board of seasoned business executives, and in partnership with the Pennsylvania Chamber Foundation, this unique program is designed specifically for Pennsylvania business organizations and their senior level and fast track executives directly impacted by government actions and policies.

The Executive Leaders Program is a seven day program with no more than three days in any one segment. Each day is devoted to hearing from presenters with inside knowledge and experience in an aspect of the program. Since the program is limited to ten participants per class, the group is small and select allowing for extensive Q&A, and providing an ideal setting for building your future network in Pennsylvania with the presenters and your fellow participants.
