Cedar Valley Leadership Institute

The Cedar Valley Leadership Institute (CVLI) is a professional development series designed to foster community awareness while developing individual leadership skills. The program gives leaders a broader view of civic leadership responsibilities and opportunities through direct contact with people who shape the Cedar Valley.

Participants in CVLI will listen to presentations, discuss issues, participate in class activities, visit with Cedar Valley business leaders, and tour facilities. Class members will also complete a service project of their choosing.
For an additional questions email Cary Darrah or call 319-232-1156.

The leadership aspects of the course were definitely relevant and transferable to my role as a claim manager. Just as important, however, was the community awareness gained.  The course strengthened my knowledge of the diversity and economic topics impacting our great Cedar Valley… my eyes were open to a whole new world.  Thank you, CVLI!
