Class XX Selection Complete

Leadership Tri-Cities has completed selection for Class XX. This was a highly competitive year. We broke records as to the number of applicants for a single class. Because of the number of applicants, the Selection Committee had to make hard choices as to who to offer an interview and then ultimately select. We encourage you to apply next year for Class XXI in the Spring of 2015.

LTC’s Value to Businesses

Thanks to all who made it to our information night last night. It was great to see so many interested applicants- as well as having current class members and alumni share their experiences!

Leadership Tri-Cities has many benefits- but the value isn’t just for the class member.

ForBusinessesAre you a leader or owner in your company and want to know what value LTC can mean to your employees? Our graduates gain practical experience and applied knowledge in leadership, project management, connecting with the right groups & leaders, interpersonal communication, the importance of diversity, and creative problem solving– and this doesn’t even include the benefit and value to the community and to the individual! All these benefits directly translate into every day work– and we’ve heard this over and over from our graduates.

Here’s what Tri-City Credit Union President (and Class XVIII alum) Doug Wadsworth said: “Leadership Tri-Cities was an outstanding experience, it both deepened and broadened my knowledge, awareness and connection with our entire community.  This should be a “no-brainer” for all local professionals:  jump on board!”
