The flagship program of Leadership Texarkana for 38 years, the annual Leadership Texarkana Class provides community leadership challenge for the advancement of our community and of all participants.

The Leadership Texarkana Class:

  • Provides nine-months of training in leadership perspectives and understanding of critical issues in the development and growth of all areas of our community, including economic development, industry, health care, education, politics, and quality of life initiatives.
  • Brings to bear the time, wisdom and resources of well over one hundred community leaders in issue-based educational sessions, providing a backstage pass into our region, invaluable to natives and newcomers alike. The program kicks-off September 14-15 with an overnight retreat, followed by monthly day-long sessions the second Tuesdays of each month from October through April; (the first week of March)
