Sharpen your Leadership skills
Everyone is a leader in one form or another. Most often we associate leadership with an employer/employee dichotomy, but leadership exists everywhere.
Each day you have an opportunity to lead. Recognizing and capitalizing on that opportunity is what sets great leaders apart from the average. What kind of leader do you want to be: average or great?
Leadership Lewisville, a program of the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce, educates, inspires and provides opportunities to develop and polish your leadership skills. The nine-month intensive leadership development program features substantial community leaders to facilitate, provide information and stimulate discussion on how to strengthen and incorporate leadership each day.

Leadership Lewisville Alumni Testimonials"I am proud to be a Leadership Lewisville graduate. It is an outstanding program in which leaders with diverse backgrounds, values, and points of view come together in a neutral setting, examine inner workings of Lewisville and its surrounding cities, and discuss the issues and challenges facing our community." ~Connie Pelphrey, Executive Director of the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation
"I had the opportunity to participate in Leadership Lewisville over ten years ago when I had just begun my career in city government. Leadership Lewisville was an intensive and informative crash course in every aspect of city, county, state and community involvement. I gained leadership skills while I became immersed in the community. Through the program I learned about Lewisville, Highland Village and Flower Mound which gave me the knowledge and tools to more effectively do my job. On top of all that, I made some great friends." ~Laurie Mullens, City of Highland Village Public Affairs Manager
