    In the fall of 2021, 35 LWAC members attended the first meeting in October where they heard updates from leaders in the areas of Arts and Entertainment; Education, Infrastructure and the Hospital Endowment; and learned about leadership opportunities in our community like serving on a non-profit board or running for elected office. 

    In December of 2021, 20 LWAC members participated in The Art of One Word where they worked to identify what their one word of 2022 would be then painted it and spent the evening networking with other Leadership Wilmington alumni and current class members.

    Will you join us for even more in 2022?

    Membership dues are $100 annually and contribute to additional programming for the Alumni Association and leadership development opportunities.
