    2. Advance new economic development strategies that help us grow our local workforce

    3. Improve our quality of life and adapt to the needs of the future

    4. Connect and engage on a deeper level away from the day-to-day distractions

  • What past attendees have to say
    “[Regional Leadership Conference] is an opportunity to step out of daily roles and think bigger than my email.”

    "The mood and topics of the RLC always help us tap into the issues, people, and needs of our community, especially the business community.”

    “Each year I am challenged to rethink some of my own biases. I meet and am inspired by people whose leadership I didn't even know about, and I am able to spend three days as part of a group that is really working to solve the challenges facing our region.”


    We'd love to hear what past attendees have to say. Feel free to email us with your feedback!
