2018 – 2019 LNC Alumni Reception Events Calendar

Each LNC program session includes a Tuesday evening reception open to all LNC alumni. This is a great opportunity to stay connected with your classmates; meet the current participants; engage with other LNC alumni, session presenters, community leaders, elected officials, and friends of LNC; and introduce prospective participants to the program. Check the list of session reception locations to see when LNC will be near you.

2019 LNC Forum @ Market Hall
Jan 24 @ 8:00 am – 3:30 pm

 

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 “Why NC?”

  • What are the places and values that attract people to live and work in North Carolina?
  • Why are parts of our state thriving, while others are struggling?
  • How have some of NC’s oldest companies stood the test of time?
  • How do we attract and retain engaged leaders to achieve success in NC?

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.
