Leadership Clark County (LCC) is a civic leadership development program in southwest Washington. This nonprofitfit, nonpartisan organization aims to develop effective community leaders to serve Clark County. LCC brings individuals with diverse interests and expertise together to challenge them to increase their knowledge of Clark County and deepen their community engagement. This unique program runs September through May and uses site tours, lectures, presentations and group discussions to engage their participants. The classes meet one day per month, Friday or Saturday, with two-day sessions in October and February.
The program has a unique experience of dividing the class into teams and pairing each team with a community organization. Through this pairing the team will complete a project that benefits the organization and the community, while the LCC team sharpens its communications and leadership skills.
The selection of LCC participants is competitive and attracts highly exceptional candidates. Prospective participants must be 21 years of age and live or work in Clark County, Washington. Participants come from a variety of fields, including education, technology, banking, law, real estate, construction, social services, non-profit, government, sales, healthcare, energy and small business—just to name a few! We are proud that our staffer Tony Johnson is a LCC graduate and past Board President and that Bryce Davidson is a 2014 graduate of the program.
Through LCC, participants will learn how various facets of Clark County work and the challenges facing our community. They will gain a deeper understanding of their own leadership style and how to apply that to both personal and professional endeavors. These participants will enhance their team building and communication skills, as well as expand their network through meeting a diverse range of professionals and community leaders. Finally, LCC participants will make lasting connections with the Clark County community.
