We're looking forward to seeing you.

Our focus for the Spring Lunch is a "launch" of sorts for the new Leadership NoVA Initiative. Our goal is to interview and profile community and business leaders who are "doers" on our community and use what we learn as a sort of "curriculum" to help student leaders become more confident, competent, and effective in leadership and project management.
