LLA News:

Enrollment is open through June 25 for the Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2017 and everyone is welcome to apply.

Between now and then, the Los Alamos Daily Post is publishing a series of Q&A profiles on recent LLA graduates who talk about their experience in the program.

Leadership Los Alamos is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization founded to identify current and emerging leaders in the Los Alamos community, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing this area.  

In the Leadership Los Alamos program, participants learn as much about themselves as they do about leadership, teamwork and the community. To learn more, visit About Leadership Los Alamos and Applying to the Program.

Chief Sgambellone: That there are a great many people working hard to sustain the high quality of life we enjoy here in Los Alamos.
