Leadership Kanwha Valley, sponsored by Chesapeake Energy, creates the opportunity for potential leaders to meet, establish rapport and maintain ongoing professional relationships.
Applicants may be self-sponsored and self-nominated. In addition, community members may nominate individuals with leadership qualities for the program.

The program is limited to 35 people.
