Leadership Mid Valley will host a Business After Hours Mixer in honor of Class XIII on Thursday, January 18 at 5:30 pm at the Weslaco Business Visitor & Event Center. Sponsored by Knapp Medical Center, the mixer will give the business community a chance to meet this year’s class members and learn more about the program.
Leadership Mid Valley is a program of the Weslaco Chamber which seeks to identify and motivate emerging leaders and develop their potential for community leadership by exposing them to the realities, opportunities and problems of the community.
Leadership classes begin in October and conclude in May. Participants meet once a month for tours, seminars and hands-on learning experiences. Session topics include government, healthcare, education, media and other important community issues. Leadership Mid-Valley brings together top-level business, civic, and government leaders for open conversation on the future of Weslaco and surrounding areas. Every class is assigned a project and fundraiser that must be completed before the graduation date. In addition, every year the Leadership class and alumni take a trip to the State Capitol where they have the opportunity to meet with various state officials, legislators and lobbyists.
