Facilitated by the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Lake Cumberland (LLC) is designed to take community leaders on a nine month journey learning more about themselves, expanding their professional and social networks, developing an understanding of how our community works and examining important issues that impact Pulaski County’s future.

The goal of LLC is to identify, motivate and develop potential community leaders. Through this charge, LLC has graduated over 500 individuals since its inception. The list of past graduates is full of community leaders who serve on various boards and committees throughout the Somerset-Pulaski County area.

“The Chamber is proud to present the 2015 LLC graduating class, one of our signature programs for the past 20 years,” said Bobby Clue, Executive Director of the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce. “The graduates have put in time, energy and effort to develop their leadership skills by going through the LLC program and are now prepared to serve our community.”

The LLC Program has prepared its graduates by designing educational programs to broaden their knowledge of Pulaski County and the critical issues affecting our region, exposing them to leadership and civic organizations and taking them on in-depth exchanges on relevant issues with leadership experts from the community and the state.

LLC is a channel for participants to gain access to leadership opportunities. It is intended for graduates to lend their talents to boards and committees of area organizations who are in need. Applications are being accepted for the 2016 Leadership Lake Cumberland class, beginning in January of 2016.
