The Leadership Allegany! program is accepting applications for the Class of 2017. The program is dedicated to developing future leaders by providing an opportunity for individuals to become acquainted with the processes, programs and challenges that currently exist in the region. The program helps participants identify issues and acquire a deeper understanding of the leadership structure within and beyond Mountain Maryland.
In a forum of open discussion and interaction, class members gain the knowledge and motivation to effect positive change within the region. Educational programs engineered for class participation and dialogue will cover such topics as Economic Development, Education, Environment, Health Care, Local Government, Social Services, State Government and Quality of Life.
This nine-month program begins with an orientation in September and concludes with graduation ceremonies in June 2017. Leadership Allegany! is currently entering it’s twentieth year. The Allegany County Chamber of Commerce believes today, more than ever, that our future is tied to strong leadership. The more informed and involved the citizens of a community become the stronger the community. In June the Class of 2016 will hold graduation ceremonies and join the ranks of over 400 alumni who have completed the program.
