The El Paso Chamber Leadership (EPCL) program is the region’s premier leadership incubator and was nationally recognized by the Stevie® Awards for Customer Service Training/Coaching Program of the Year - Business Services Industries category award winner in 2021. Over the course of a year, a select group of professionals come together each month to learn more about the major sectors, organizations, businesses, and programs operating in the greater El Paso area. Participants meet with some of the most powerful changemakers in the Borderland, learn leadership skills from regional experts, and network with key stakeholders across a wide range of industries. In addition to these professional development opportunities, each class is also responsible for developing and executing a class project that drives lasting, positive change in El Paso.
El Paso Chamber Ambassadors are a highly motivated and enthusiastic group of volunteers that perform several key functions for the El Paso Chamber. These members serve as the welcome wagon, cheerleaders, mentors, counselors, and guides. They assist the El Paso Chamber in assuring that its members are well informed and are receiving the full measure of service, support and resources available to them.
In alignment with the El Paso Chamber’s ongoing commitment to transforming business and improving lives, we provide access to the following tools and trainings:
Quality Texas Foundation’s Pioneer Level Training: The El Paso Chamber covers tuition costs for members. The trainings are based on the Baldridge Criteria for Performance Excellence, a method that helps organizations improve their efficacy, and are applicable to businesses, hospitals, schools, government agencies, and non-profits alike.
