The 2015 VIA Leadership Program kicks off on March 10th!
Reserve your place now!
The Leadership Program will fully acquaint participants with the work of the Valley Industry Association and the steps toward leadership roles, will bring in experts to discuss various aspects of leadership, will provide recommended reading and homework related to the topics, will assign business-related projects to participant teams and publish the results, and will introduce participants to key community contacts and leaders.
Here are some of the topics we will cover this year:
Leading Meeting & Time Management
Ethics & Integrity
Problem Solving & Critical Thinking
Here’s what some past participants had to say about the program:
“VIA Leadership Program is a pool of never-ending knowledge, success and support that can be used for any stage of business and continuous growth.”
-Brandon Fried, class of 2014
Hands for Hire
“This program provides the opportunity to grow as a leader, build relationships and learn from leaders in our community. It has been a valuable experience for me.”
-Gwen Bagley, class of 2014
YMCA of Santa Clarita Valley
“The leadership program that the Valley Industry Association provides is unlike any other leadership program in the Santa Clarita Valley… I highly recommend the program to any of the business owners along with new and upcoming employees who really want to prove their worth rather than just talk about it.”
-Chris Schrage, class of 2013
