Sponsored by the Weslaco Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Mid-Valley is an eight-month program which seeks to identify and motivate emerging leaders and develop their potential for community leadership by exposing them to the realities, opportunities and problems of the community.
Leadership classes begin in October and conclude in May. Participants meet once a month for tours, seminars and hands-on learning experiences. Session topics include government, healthcare, education, media and other important community issues. Leadership Mid-Valley brings together top-level business, civic, and government leaders for open conversation on the future of Weslaco and surrounding areas. Every class is assigned a project and fundraiser that must be completed before the graduation date. In addition, every year the Leadership class and alumni take a trip to the State Capitol where they have the opportunity to meet with various state officials, legislators and lobbyists.
Due to COVID-19 this year the Weslaco Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Franklin Covey to bring you a new Leadership Experience.
