Flagship Program

COVID-19: Leadership Asheville (LA) holds the health and safety of our participants and staff as our number one priority and will follow all protocols and guidelines set by our local and state healthcare experts. We will always follow the advice of local health officials and prioritize the health and well-being of our participants, staff, and community and adjust class schedules as required.

The primary aid of the Leadership Asheville Program is to strengthen participants’ knowledge of, commitment to, and involvement in collaborative community leadership. The program is designed to develop, connect, and engage citizens from cross-sectors of the community, including business, nonprofit, education, and government.

Participants complete the program with:

  • increased capacity to contribute as effective leaders
  • a strong connection to the network of Leadership Asheville Program graduates and supporters
  • a greater knowledge of the area in which they live
