“Leadership Hanover has given me the unique opportunity to experience many sectors of the Hanover community in a condensed yet effective approach. Through the panel discussions, speakers and facility tours, I feel better acclimated to the working of our unique community. I have lived in this community all my life yet still learned countless things about Hanover throughout the class. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants an inside perspective of the Hanover community.”

“The format of the program allows each individual to see and learn about things that the average citizen may not have the opportunity to. It really does help to build a competitive advantage for you as you learn not only about our local economy and government, but also our state government. I would recommend this program to anyone, from the person who has been in business for 20 years to a recent college graduate looking to build themselves within the Hanover Area. It truly is an eye opening experience.”

“Leadership is about knowing the people that follow you, and being conscious of the people and places that made them who they are today. On a local level, leadership means understanding the culture that makes Hanover so special. I believe the most skilled leaders understand the importance of looking to the past to guide their decision-making process. Truly, Leadership Hanover is a great way to get plugged into your surroundings and ultimately make your surroundings a better place to live and work. ”
