Leadership Development Wabash County program postponed for 2020

Wabash County, IN __Grow Wabash County has made the decision to postpone hosting a 2020-2021 cohort of the Leadership Development Wabash County (LDWC) program.

The decision was carefully made after extensive conversations between the Leadership Development program committee, program facilitators, and Grow Wabash County. Feedback was also collected from area employers that have been longtime supporters, participants, and sponsors of the program.

The LDWC commonly hosts up to 30 people for monthly workshops at various locations around Wabash County. As our community continues to navigate the rules and expectations of social distancing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Grow Wabash County feels that it is in the community’s best interest to postpone the program.

“Leadership Development Wabash County is our flagship program and it is with much trepidation that we made the decision to postpone the program,” said Keith Gillenwater, President and CEO of Grow Wabash County. “We are actively monitoring the situation and we hope to potentially offer the program in early 2021 if the public health situation allows it.”

Grow Wabash County plans to offer virtual leadership programming over the next several months until the traditional program is able to be offered with more details to be released in the coming weeks.
