Goal: Support the development of the region's emerging leaders.

The need for effective leadership exists in all corners of a community.  With time and age, the baton of leadership will pass.  How can the current leadership prepare those who will follow us for the responsibility of ensuring the health and vibrancy of our community?

With four successful years of the Regional Leadership Series completed, the responsibility of the Leadership Work Group shall be to offer a fifth round of programs to the region's emerging leaders and begin discussions with one or more of the four institutions supporting the program as it relates to the sustainability of the RLS beyond TGCC.

The Regional Leadership Series was developed by The Greater Cumberland Committee in 2009 along with Allegany College of Maryland, Frostburg State University, Garrett College and Potomac State College of WVU.  The backbone of this program is to compliment existing leadership programs including: Leadership Allegany!, Leadership MD and Leadership WV.  The goal of the series is to give graduates of these programs and other existing and potential civic and corporate leaders the tools they need to affect positive and sustainable change in our regional community.
