Are you a Leader?
In recognition of the need to develop leaders for the future who have a clear understanding of the region and are committed to its advancement, The Chamber SWLA and the SWLA Alliance Foundation created Leadership SWLA program. The program begins with a class welcoming mixer in January, an overnight retreat in February, and continues through the year with full day sessions monthly.
The experience-based training sessions are conducted by recognized leaders whose decisions affect the region in areas such as economic development, business, workforce development, human services, education, government, coastal restoration, and infrastructure.
