The East Kentucky Leadership Conference is not a conference for a few speakers and listeners. The goal is to make everyone a speaker, listener, and most importantly, an effective leader. The leaders of Eastern Kentucky must work together to solve the problems of this area. Through networking, discussion and sharing of time, we can create a unified front to address the problems facing Eastern Kentucky.
The conference will offer networking opportunities for young professionals, workshops on strategic planning and grants, and a number of panels which include community philanthropy, building a high-tech economy in Eastern Kentucky, and the coal severance tax. Governor Steve Beshear will be the keynote speaker.
