What is New Leaders Kittitas County?

New Leaders Kittitas County (NLKC) is a program by the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Central Washington to engage, educate and empower current professionals and emerging leaders. This program creates opportunities for connectivity, innovation and influence in our workforce and communities.

“United Way of Central Washington is so excited to be partnering with the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce to help make an impact on the community by forming New Leaders Kittitas County,” said Resource Development Manager Joshua Callanan. “Already we have a ton of great ideas and I can’t wait to see what this group of young professionals will be able to accomplish.”

“New Leaders Kittitas County is a fresh and inclusive way to connect current leaders and those wanting to pursue leadership roles in the community,” said Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce CEO Amy McGuffin. Similar to a young professional program, New Leaders Kittitas County allows those 21+ to join both the Chamber and United Way of Central Washington in celebrating new lifelong connections imperative to the success of our county and each industry professional attending.”
