Leadership Tri-State is also now accepting applications for its 2014 class.

Each session is organized around a theme and is explored through speakers, discussions, field trips and other activities at different locations throughout the Tri-State.

At the completion of the program, participants will have developed both a network of relationships with a cross-section of leaders throughout the region and a broader knowledge of the issues facing the Tri-State.

The tuition fee for the program is $695, which covers the costs and meal expenses for all sessions.
