Half-day classes will take place the first and third Thursdays of October and November. Full days will run from December to May on the first Thursday of each month.

The program's objective involves developing, informing and training potential leaders so they understand the issues and needs of the community. It looks to create an environment that nurtures involvement in the community through volunteerism, service organizations and board appointments.

Leadership Kanwha Valley creates the opportunity for potential leaders to meet, establish rapport and maintain ongoing professional relationships.

Applicants may be self-sponsored and self-nominated. In addition, community members may nominate individuals with leadership qualities for the program, which has 35 seats available.

Participants can miss no more than the equivalent of one full-day session.

The tuition rate is $495 for Charleston Area Alliance members and $595 for future members. The fee covers all expenses for the program.
