Business leaders join for a planned experience that exposes them to the overall needs of the community and region.  The program examines topics that run the gamut from economic development to medical services to education.  Field visits to key facilities in the city and county along with presentations by professionals who have expertise in a number of specialty and technical fields round out the average day.  Participants attend an orientation session and 1-day retreat and participate in a 1-day session each month from September to May.  Applications are accepted May-June for the session beginning the following August. A Leadership Alumni group started in Fall 2006 to continue the networking bond.
