Through a series of thought-provoking session days, Leadership Tech Valley develops the leadership potential of participants and builds a solid foundation of informed, action-orientated and productive employees and citizens.
The program begins with a two-day overnight opening retreat in early fall to begin leadership training, personal development and the team-building process.
Nine subsequent sessions are held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the first or second Friday of each month from October through June, followed by a graduation ceremony. Monthly sessions are themed around various elements of our community to serve as a catalyst for expanding awareness in economic development, community service, diversity, media, education, government and politics, health care and quality of life.
Components of the sessions include keynote speakers, roundtable discussions, tours and interactive learning opportunities. Each session offers a unique opportunity for participants to have an inside look at some of the area’s most innovative organizations; connect to top business, government and civic leaders; and enhance their professional networks.
Leadership Tech Valley unites individuals from diverse fields and backgrounds to learn more about themselves as leaders and how to best serve their organizations and community.
Leadership Tech Valley is a shared initiative of the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Schenectady County.
