Leadership Summit is designed for current and emerging leaders who have the capacity to make a positive impact in the community. The program brings together a diverse group of professionals from financial services, education, the ski industry, healthcare, the arts, community organizations, government and other sectors. Participants acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be more effective as a leader in business and volunteer community.
