Our community's future success depends on pro-active, visionary leaders that lead strategically and progressively towards the common good of all.  The Elevate Leadership Institute will develop passionate, motivated, and engaged citizens who will understand how the workings of our community, state, region, and nation impact everyday lives.

An ELI graduate will advance their natural desire to serve, engage, lead and inspire others to join them to achieve even greater success.  Together we will discover the vision and continue to develop partnerships with a purpose to elevate the region for all.
