About Leadership Hancock County

Leadership Hancock County was developed to provide leadership education to a cohort of participants from a variety of businesses and organizations throughout Hancock County. LHC allowed companies to send employees for in-depth training close to home and at a reasonable cost. Besides facilitated instruction  the program includes an in depth look at the economic sectors of Hancock County, by introducing leaders in their fields discussing the roles, challenges and impact of their work and industry.

Over 12 years of programs included introductions to governance, healthcare, hospitality and tourism, manufacturing, fishing, bioscience and research, arts, education and more.


To date over 150 alumni have graduated from the LHC program.  Over 50  companies have sent employees, managers, directors, and sole proprietors to Leadership Hancock County.
