The Leadership Advance program has given me an opportunity to get to know myself much better. As a result of the program, I am not only a better leader but a better citizen. The connections I have made with other leaders through the program have enriched my life. I would definitely not be where I am today without the Leadership Advance program and what it has meant to my life.
