About Leadership Asheville

Leadership Asheville exists to build collaborative leadership capacity and foster an equitable, inclusive and sustainable community for all. To do this, we promote community leadership and civic responsibility by developing, connecting, and engaging citizens throughout the region to address the challenges and opportunities we face. If you are interested, please consider applying to participate in our flagship program.

“Leadership Asheville is such a powerful, dynamic program – it was far better than I even expected! The opportunity to meet and work with so many others in the community is exceptional. The panels and local leaders we get to learn from are wonderful.”
