Community Leadership Speaker Series

To foster community and leadership, LCC launched the Community Leadership Speaker Series to provide an opportunity for LCC alumni, current classmates and the general public to connect directly to fellow community leaders in an intimate setting.

Leadership Speaker Series events are also designed to encourage informal dialogue and participant engagement as featured speakers share their insights regarding key issues affecting Clark County and their personal approach to leadership. 


This program is held two to three times each year, allowing community leaders to engage with and help us learn about their leadership goals, challenges and opportunities.

Each session brings a unique community focus on subjects such as local government, education and more.

Sessions also include a continental breakfast and run approximately 90 minutes in length. Seating is limited, purchase your tickets early.

Please check the upcoming event section for updates on our next Leadership Speaker Series event.
