The Leadership Greater Nashua program consists of a series of classes that give a first-hand look into Nashua’s infrastructure and community. These monthly, day-long classes are all mandatory and are guided by a series of themes classifying the different sectors that make up Nashua. They are lead by Chamber staff as well as area experts.  The information and connections forged will contribute to the class’s final project—a unique, valuable contribution to the community that draws upon the resources discovered throughout the year.
