Leadership Henderson is a nonprofit organization under the Henderson Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Designed as a program of exploration and examination, Leadership Henderson examines issues, asks critical questions and strives to provide answers that do not conform to the status quo.
Devoted to educating and empowering Leaders
The program is an seven-month course devoted to educating and empowering civic-minded professionals with a goal of building and maintaining a strong network of effective community leaders.
Through panel presentations by community leaders and experts, simulations, plus hands-on experiences, participants learn about current issues pertaining to local economy, government, social services, health, gaming, business and education that affect the residents and businesses that call Henderson home. Selection of participants (both acknowledged and aspiring leaders) is based upon demonstrated leadership experience, potential, and abilities. The cost of the program is $2,500.
Scholarships are available for Small Businesses. The Nevada State Bank Small Business Scholarship is available to businesses with less than 20 employees and who have been operating a minimum of 3 years. See the application for details.
Opening Session: January 21-22, 2021
The Leadership Henderson program begins in January with a Class Retreat which is a MANDATORY two (2) day (including an overnight stay) workshop where classmates get to know one another and discover more about themselves. From there, the monthly classes are held on Friday’s (running every 3 to 4 weeks) from February through July (dates subject to change). The final event of the class year is a graduation ceremony where friends and family can celebrate your completion of the Leadership Henderson program. Graduation is held in July and concludes the program requirements. There are also several events in which class members are encouraged to attend but which are not mandatory. These events include Biddin’ for Bottles and Thank Leadership It’s Friday mixers (held after each monthly class session).
