Kate Luczko, Chamber President and CEO, shares her thoughts on the program and class:
“As a graduate of Leadership Greater Nashua, I know the value of the program. It gives participants the tools and resources they need to have an in-depth understanding of Greater Nashua’s cultural and economic opportunities as well as its civic and community needs. Students build on their existing strengths as leaders while growing their professional network. I am excited to get to know and work with this year’s class, and to see what they will do in the future with all that they learn from the program. “
