Lead In 2019


Leadership Institute

Lead In is an experiential leadership development program designed to attract and retain an educated population of young professionals and leaders by equipping them with skills necessary to propel them to the next level of leadership through interaction with community decision-makers.

The program will expose participants to critical community issues that enhance each member’s understanding of assets and resources within the community, potential solutions to problems and strategies for becoming more involved. This includes providing access and interaction with public servants and community and business leaders from all areas of development to experience hands-on learning and expanding participants’ understanding of people and beliefs that may be different than their own.

Program size is intentionally limited to 20 participants between the ages of 21 and 40.  The program runs late January through September with members meeting the 3rd or 4th Wednesday of the month for several hours.
