Leadership Statesville is a nine month program that identifies potential community leaders with diverse backgrounds, preparing them to accept unique opportunities to strengthen and transform the Statesville community through active involvement.
The goal of Leadership Statesville is to identify potential community leaders and provide them with information and encouragement, which will enable them to put their talents to use in the community.
Statesville and Iredell County are in a period of transition. The profiles of the city and county are changing. Today’s leaders need to have access to more current information. Once informed, they must accept the unique opportunity, as well as, the responsibility of active community involvement.
This is an innovative program designed to meet our community’s ever growing need for the active participation of knowledgeable and dedicated leaders.
Developing Future Leaders…Today!
Training business and professional people to assume community leadership roles is one way to ensure a continuing reservoir of leadership talent for the future. For the past twenty years, local community leaders have taught a maximum of 30 business people a year in each of the leadership programs.
A diverse group is assembled to encourage a better understanding of the different sectors that make up our community. An opening retreat is designed to ensure a class identity and to build relationships. Classmates reach a solid understanding of how they work as a team.
During a nine month course, there are eight sessions. One full day per month providing information about local issues, areas of community need, and current resources through the interaction between community leaders and program participants. These sessions are held September through May with graduation in May.
