  • Leadership Washington County

    The Leadership Washington County Program was designed to bring area professionals from our local businesses who have a passion to serve the community in leadership positions. During the nine month program, the class meets one day each month to learn about Education, Business and Economic Development, Health and Wellness, Legal and Law, Traditional and Alternative Agriculture, and Local and State Government. Each class begins with a retreat that bring the class members together for a tour of the county, meet with community officials, and spend some social time getting to know each other. The program is held every other year, and is planned entirely by alumni of the program.
