2016 Executive Leadership

Executive Leadership Wilkes-Barre began in 1985 as a community orientation program for key executives, professionals, and their spouses who recently moved into Northeastern Pennsylvania, have recently moved into an executive position, or for those who would like to get re-acquainted with our community. Executive Leadership Wilkes-Barre is comprised of six sessions that begin in the fall. Programs will be held on a weekly basis on Monday evenings, September 11th through October 23rd, beginning at 5 p.m. (**There will be no session on October 9 in observance of Columbus Day). Sessions include presentations and question/answer periods on topics such as local history, political structure, educational opportunities, economic development, networking opportunities and more. Cocktails and a gourmet dinner are also part of each evening session. The cost of the program is $1,500, with spouses included at no additional cost.
