The LNC Forum is Leadership North Carolina’s flagship event for leaders from across North Carolina. Often referred to as “LNC in one day,” the LNC Forum provides an update for LNC alumni and a sample of the LNC experience for leaders interested in the program. Hosted annually, the Forum educates leaders about the most critical issues facing the state, creating a more informed group of stakeholders committed to North Carolina’s future.

This year’s theme is “advaNCing NC – Navigating the Changing Landscape.”  The people of NC are inherently optimistic.  Through years of challenges and growth, we continue to look for actions to continuously move our state forward.  We weather changes in leadership and business challenges – and we always find ways to advance NC.

This year’s LNC forum will bring together influential leaders who are helping to shape our state’s vision and advance NC forward.  We need to continue to define the idea of leadership in NC and how we can engage with one another to solve the challenges of the day.   We will go beyond identifying the challenges to work towards solutions.  Please join us for these important conversations.
