Leadership Mahoning Valley applications available through May 1

Applications for the Leadership Mahoning Valley class of 2014-2015 are now available and may be submitted through May 1.

Participants complete a nine-month program, which includes nine monthly daylong sessions that focus on major community systems such as education, health, human service, heritage, government, justice, labor, business, poverty and diversity. A graduation dinner concludes each class year. Sessions provide the opportunity for the class to share learning experiences and to interact with leaders from sectors of the community outside their own.

A selection committee comprised of LMV members will review all applications received by the May 1 deadline. The selection committee will choose up to 40 participants for the 2014-2015 class.

Selection criteria include recognized leadership ability in the applicant’s field and a demonstrated commitment to community service. Candidates may request applications directly or be nominated to apply by their employer, a program graduate or others. Every effort is made to attract applications that ensure a class that reflects the diversity of this area’s occupations, its racial, religious and ethnic groups, as well as a balanced demographic and geographic mix.

The program was created to identify individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who demonstrate leadership talent and community commitment. LMV seeks to provide adult community leaders with an overview of the Mahoning Valley, an opportunity for increased understanding of key community issues and the potential to develop effective working relationships with other civic leaders.

The tuition fee of $2,000 covers all program costs, including meals, admission fees and program supplies. Applications may be requested by e-mail at lmv@leadershipmv.org or by phone at 330-744-2131, ext. 41. The LMV office is located in the First National Bank Building, 11 Central Square, Suite 1600, Youngstown, Ohio 44503.
