Join leaders and community members from Eastern Kentucky and beyond for the 27th annual East Kentucky Leadership Conference’s “Transforming Crisis into Opportunity.”

The East Kentucky Leadership Foundation brings together people from all walks of life and throughout Eastern Kentucky for a two-day conference to discuss issues important to the region.

Any person or group that aspires to a leadership role in Eastern Kentucky should take this opportunity to meet with other leaders from throughout the region and share ideas for solutions to the problems which have kept the region from reaching its fullest potential.

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.

Notable speakers include Congressman Hal Rogers, Gov. Steve Beshear and David C. Wilhelm, who will speak on Appalachian Capitalism.

Concurrent sessions include topics on Keeping SOAR Flying: Federal and State Initiatives; Entrepreneurship-Helping Small Business Soar; Next Generation Technology: Super I-Way; Race to the Top: The Changing Face of K12 Education in Eastern Kentucky; and Tourism and the Arts: Marketing our Mountain Wonderland.

Register online for the 27th annual East Kentucky Leadership Conference.
