New for 2019, we are organizing our curriculum into a quarterly thematic approach. Leadership Luncheons and Networking will be more cohesive so you have the opportunity to explore a topic from multiple angles. Additionally, we will now offer tiered workshops called “Leadership Studies” that take a deeper dive into the quarterly theme. You now have the opportunity to select from offerings at a beginning, middle and advanced level. Learn more below.
Our themes for 2019 are Limitless, Team Building, Balance, and Unity. Please note that times and locations are TBA. Check out our Calendar for an up-to-date list.
