Years serving place-based leaders in our community.

This experience was life changing. NLC brought me together with a group of people that will be part of my life forever. I feel stronger knowing that there are people alongside me across every sector who want to make our community better. I would not trade this experience for anything. Thank you, NLC-TC!
