An inaugural leadership conference was hosted by Leadership Cattaraugus and Leadership Allegany on August 8, 2013, at St. Bonaventure University.
Both organizations wanted to continue to provide leadership training for their alumni, and were looking into what type of venue to develop to bring this about.
Jesse Gugino, Administrator of Leadership Cattaraugus spoke with Pam Witter, Chairperson for Leadership Allegany, about a conference. A leadership conference was one of Leadership Allegany’s strategic initiatives for this year. The organizations agreed to cooperate and work together to plan one.
