The world we face today is so extraordinarily complex & fast paced – news comes at us in real time from every part of the world. This complexity trickles down to our local communities where we face challenges ranging from housing, job creation, the flight of young professionals & crime in our streets. How we deal effectively with the complex issues in our community is at the very heart of Leadership Huntington.
There are well over 1,000 community leadership programs nationwide. Together, we have crafted one of the best, right here in the Town of Huntington. Started 20 years ago as a partnership of the Huntington Chamber Foundation & the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce, the organization has been an independent, member supported 501(c)3 organization since 2007.
We believe that the best solutions to the complex challenges facing our communities start locally with citizens who understand the issues, their communities, and their own vision and values. Leadership Huntington fosters this understanding, and builds the skills needed for citizens to communicate their unique perspectives and participate in constructive dialogue. Each year a class of future leaders is accepted into the Leadership Huntington Program. The program takes emerging leaders on a year-long journey through the past, present and future of Huntington to inspire and effectively connect the current and emerging leaders in our community.
