MUSIC by Scott Holmes

Sponsored by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance the mission of Community Leadership Service is to provide current and prospective retirees a broader understanding of the Historic Triangle -- its people, needs, governing bodies, and key institutions; and to encourage participants to pursue volunteer leadership roles in the community.

The biennial program begins with an orientation session in late January, and then meets every Tuesday ending with a debriefing and recognition ceremony in early-April. CLS is especially attractive to area newcomers, retirees, those about to retire and to individuals with flexible schedules which allow them to participate in the weekly sessions.  

Program Information

Through a series of eleven exciting day-long sessions, participants receive a view into the inner workings of the Historic Triangle and have unequalled access to local leaders in areas including:

• Area History
