• Leadership in the Valley Application Process

    • Application Process: Complete the online application. Please allow 30-40 minutes. In addition, each candidate must submit two letters of support with the application, one of which must come from someone outside the applicant’s present employer and one from a direct supervisor as appropriate for support to attend the program and refer you. If you are an owner of a business, two letters of outside support are acceptable. The Chamber staff and the Leadership in the Valley Steering Committee are not allowed to prepare letters of support for candidates. The letters should describe how the person knows you, how long they have known you, and explain why they think you should be considered for Leadership in the Valley. Participants must attend at least 80% of all sessions (maximum 2 absences). The first kick-off program day is mandatory in effort to develop early cohesion of the group. Attendance below the 80% guideline means the participant will not graduate from Leadership in the Valley. Class projects will consume time outside of the regular day sessions approximately 10-20 hours of outside time. Project group members schedule meetings according to their collective availability. The Leadership in the Valley Steering Committee will review each application independently. Application deadline is July 15th, 2024 (postmark deadline). Applications will be evaluated, and applicants be will notified by letter about this year’s class selection by the end of July 2023.
