About LCC – Leadership Clark County is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic leadership development program. Founded in 1993, participants are selected through a competitive application process and gain in-depth knowledge of our community and leadership skills that enable them to be more effective in their community involvement. The nine-month program runs September through May and is offered annually to individuals from Clark County's private, nonprofit and public sectors. Nearly 700 people have completed the program and serve our community as nonprofit board members, civic group leaders, business leaders and elected officials.
