Lead Historic Triangle

Sponsored by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance, LEAD Historic Triangle's mission is to encourage, develop and support future community leaders. The LHT program provides the foundation necessary to develop effective leaders within the Community. By being exposed to various aspects of the Historic Triangle, class members can enhance their leadership skills with others.
