Take the lead in the Kanawha Valley

LKV NEWCruising in a C-130 airplane, spending time with a police drug enforcement unit and participating in the physical therapy of horses aren’t the typical assignments you’d find in a business curriculum.

But for participants in the Charleston Area Alliance’s Leadership Kanawha Valley program, these experiences are business as usual.

Leadership Kanawha Valley is now accepting registrations for its 2014-2015 class and space is limited.
