CHAUTAUQUA LEADERSHIP NETWORK  Growing leaders since 1993

Committees are Where the Work Gets Done

While the Board of Directors make major decisions about the overall direction and function of the Chautauqua Leadership Network, it is at the committee level that the specific implementation of those decisions take place. The committees are comprised of members who have interest and experience in the subject of the committee they serve on. There is also at least one board director on each committee.
