Leadership Washington County
Harry Truman once noted, "Where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better."
"One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency." - Arnold Glasow
The Washington County Chamber of Commerce embraces this thinking. That's why each year Leadership Washington County is held, and it is one of the key programs offered by this Chamber.
The goal of this program is to educate and prepare participants for future leadership roles in this community, and to help expand their knowledge of local resources and issues.
After graduating, participants can stay involved by helping to facilitate sessions for the next years' Leadership classes.
