"Leadership Monongalia's purpose is to identify, develop and sustain community leaders. The program aims to develop and enhance personal leadership skills, provide knowledge enrichment of Monongalia County and to develop and cultivate leadership involvement throughout Monongalia County."
The cultivation of new leadership is of utmost importance to West Virginia's future prosperity and progress. Leadership Monongalia seeks to develop and motivate a cross-section of leaders who will use their talents and abilities to inspire others and to foster a new spirit of energy, enthusiasm and vitality throughout the county.
At each of the leadership sessions recognized authorities, practitioners, teachers, professionals and analysts will provide information and insight into a program topic: Economic Development, Education, Social Services, Arts and Culture, Health Care, Government and Leadership.
A variety of views will be presented on each topic, and visits will be made to local sites which will reinforce, through observation and practical experience the particular subject of the leadership session.
“My experience in Leadership Mon has been amazing and truly memorable. Each session
topic is interesting and applicable to today’s leaders. The speakers have shared
a wealth of their first hand knowledge with participants and activities we’ve participated
in have kept the each session fun and engaging. The networking opportunities are
countless and the relationships I’ve formed after such a short time are sure to last
