"The LWC program has been a more intellectually broadening course than I anticipated. I expected some leadership training and knowledge about participation on nonprofit boards. But I learned so much more about different aspects of Washington County that I would have experienced otherwise. LWC has given me information and tools to be a better leader in my career and in my community."
"As a military retiree moving back to my hometown, it's difficult to figure out how to make a difference in the community, especially when the community is so diverse. Leadership Washington County allowed me to first, connect with local leaders in the community; and second, understand what other professions in the community do and how we can interact in these different professional LWC is a tool that connects current leaders to build the communities of tomorrow."
"Like ripples in a pond, strong leadership in Washington County's for-profit and nonprofit sectors has far-reaching effects on the lives of its citizens. To maintain a thriving Washington County, it is imperative that those who undertake leadership roles understand the inter-relation and importance of both. They must act with integrity and mindfulness of how their decisions can positively or negatively impact not only their own organizations, but how the ripple effect of those decisions extend and influence Washington County citizens of every socio-economic level."
"The Leadership Washington County educates participants on all the unique opportunities, businesses and industries in Washington County. The program is also a great opportunity to meet new leaders in Washington County and focus on personal development. I more strongly appreciate and have a greater sense of pride in Washington County after completing the program and I would 100% suggest Leadership Washington County to other current and up-and-coming leaders in the community."
"Leadership Washington County was an extremely valuable experience for me both personally and professionally. I greatly benefited from being able to develop my best self as a leader, and I am confident that the strategies and philosophies discussed throughout the program will positively impact me and my colleagues. Additionally, the amount of unique, first-hand experiences across multiple sectors of Washington County business, entertainment and community were phenomenal; I walked away from every single class with something new and of value."
