The Community Leadership Speaker Series was developed to provide an opportunity for the general public to connect directly to 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 approaches to leadership.
