Attending an information session will give applicants an opportunity to interact with the steering committee co-chairs and current class participants, learn more about the program, and discuss the program requirements, format, commitment, cost and selection process.
Individuals who have demonstrated leadership in their respective careers and have a strong desire to be a part of the region and growth of Tech Valley are encouraged to apply.
While the program is an initiative of the Capital Region Chamber, potential members are also eligible to participate.
How to Apply
We are not currently accepting applications. Please check back in April of 2019 for information on the class of 2020, which will commence meeting in September 2019.
As part of the selection process, interviews will be scheduled with prospective candidates beginning in late May. Approximately 40 program participants will be chosen by a selection committee. Some candidates, even those with strong credentials, may not be selected. Selection will be complete by late June, and candidates will be notified by mail.
If you have any questions about the selection process, contact Brandi Landy at (518) 431-1414.
