Homegrown Leaders


It’s been a difficult year for so many, and it has taken a toll on many of our rural leaders and communities. Take some time to focus on and reinvest in yourself and your community by leveling up your leadership skills with Homegrown Leaders.

Homegrown Leaders is a three-day regional leadership and community economic development training that equips existing and emerging leaders with the skills they need to lead long-term economic advancement in their community and region.
