Engage Sarasota is one of the most popular programs of The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Sarasota. Each month, participants meet for lunch and hear speakers from various segments of the community. Topics include higher education, constitutional officers, local government, medical care, the media, arts and the county court and criminal justice system.
“If you don’t have the time to commit to Leadership Sarasota, Engage Sarasota is a great
opportunity to get an inside view of Sarasota. This program takes you behind the scenes and into places you might not otherwise have the occasion to go. It’s a very cost and time effective way to meet other people and expand your knowledge of the Sarasota community.”
