“There is no better training ground for leaders in Montgomery County,” said Angela Speight, WBA President, LMC Class of 2009 graduate and former LMC Board Member, “It is truly a unique and enriching experience – and one I’m thrilled our WBA members are seeking.”


During the 9-month program, LMC class members will participate in monthly education sessions focusing on areas such as education, healthcare, economic development and criminal justice.
