LEAD Clermont Community Leadership Program Introduces Class of 2022

Union Township, Clermont County Ohio (August 13, 2021) – Representatives from 31 Clermont County business, education, healthcare, government, social service and nonprofit organizations will participate in the LEAD Clermont Community Leadership Program (CLP) Class of 2022, which recently kicked off its leadership development journey with a networking event attended by dozens of the program’s alumni.
