Our programs have been redesigned

Overview

 

Housed in the Virginia Institute of Government (VIG), the LEAD program equips local government leaders at every level with the tools to effectively and proactively institute positive change in their organizations. LEAD consists of a one-week course taught by subject matter experts and local government practitioners focused on creating well-equipped, agile, and high performing local governments.

SEI and LEAD are offering a virtual program on September 13 & 14. Balancing Leadership is a two-day immersive experience with an updated combination of LEAD and SEI’s most critical and relevant topics with timely additions designed to help any local government leader navigate these challenging times.
