Leadership Mahoning Valley extends application deadline to July 25

Leadership Mahoning Valley has extended its application deadline to July 25.

Participants complete a 9-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.

All sessions provide the opportunity for the class to share relevant learning experiences and interact with leaders from sectors of the community outside their own. A graduation dinner concludes each class year.

The tuition fee of $2,000 covers all program costs, including meals, admission fees and program supplies.

Leadership Mahoning Valley seeks to identify and develop individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who demonstrate leadership talent and community commitment.

The program provides adult community leaders with a general 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.

A selection committee comprised of Leadership Mahoning Valley members will review all applications received by the July 25 deadline. The selection committee will choose up to 40 participants for the 2014-2015 class.

Applications may be requested by e-mail at lmv@leadershipmv.org or by phone at 330-744-2131, extension 41. Selected applicants will be billed for tuition.

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 Leadership Mahoning Valley office is located in the First National Bank Building, 11 Central Square, Suite 1600, Youngstown, Ohio 44503.
