LEAD program now accepting volunteer applications

2014-2015 LEAD Delegates

A new year brings new volunteer opportunities at the Denton Chamber of Commerce. Throughout the year, the Chamber looks for dedicated and reliable individuals to represent the organization in various capacities. The LEAD program is accepting applications. This is a year-long initiative designed to strengthen the member base through involvement, innovative thinking and mentoring.

The LEAD program evolved from the former ambassador program to a more selective process in which the Chamber seeks approximately 20 of the most qualified member representatives.  The initial eligibility requirements include being employed by a Denton Chamber of Commerce business member in good standing that has been active for a minimum period of 6 months. In addition, we expect candidates to represent our organization in a professional manner and balance the program with the demands of their business.


The LEAD program is comprised of a program chair, directors, and delegates that are divided among four coalitions – Outreach, Welcome, Host, and Recruitment. Each coalition serves a unique purpose within the organization with different responsibilities.

  • The Welcome Coalition delegates build relationships with potential members, provide assistance to new Chamber members and represent the Chamber at ribbon cuttings.
  • The Outreach Coalition delegates provide assistance to and representation of the Chamber through relationship building.
  • The Host Coalition delegates provide assistance and representation at Chamber events.
  • The Recruitment Coalition delegates provide the Chamber with leads on potential new members and raise awareness within the community about how the Denton Chamber of Commerce serves businesses.

The current program is chaired by Jacee Kiefer with Bill Utter Ford. The Welcome Coalition is directed by Ryan Mayer (Texas Woman’s University) the Outreach Coalition, by Kathy Glasschroeder (The Glasschroeder Agency) and the Host Coalition, by Monica Glenn (Best Western Premier).

The LEAD program can be an ideal place to start in your development as a leader within the Chamber as well as the Denton community. ​The Chamber encourages those interested in volunteering via the LEAD Program to attend the information session on Wednesday, February 11 at 4 p.m. An application must be submitted to be considered for the 2015-2016 program year.
