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.

Advance RSVPs are required. If you have questions about a reception or would like to bring a prospective applicant as a guest, please email rsvp@leadershipnc.org.

Join LNC alumni and friends of LNC for a look into the economic development progress and plans behind the new Mega Site in Person County.

  • How does economic development in rural NC counties differ from urban counties?
  • How do economic development projects broaden the state’s strategies to attract companies to invest in NC?
  • How does local infrastructure come into play?
