Leadership Tech Valley Class of 2018 Announced
Forty-three individuals have been selected to participate in the Leadership Tech Valley program, which unites individuals from diverse fields and backgrounds to learn more about themselves as leaders and how to best serve their organizations and community.
Leadership Tech Valley is a program of the Capital Region Chamber. Ten monthly sessions, including opening and closing retreats, are held from September through June, followed by a graduation ceremony. Sessions are themed around various elements of the community to serve as a catalyst for expanding awareness in economic development, community service, diversity, media, education, government, health care and quality of life.
The program also requires participants to attain 16 hours of experiential credit by visiting businesses and organizations throughout the region and to complete a service project to benefit the community.
