Board of Directors
ICL is governed by a board of distinguished community members representing the sponsoring agencies and the community at large. The board meets twice a year to monitor ICL programs and initiatives.
Graduates of the ICL Program are engaged in leadership positions across the county making our community a better place to live and work. Government agencies and non-profit organizations eagerly seek ICL alumni to offer them positions on their boards and commissions.
The origins for ICL can be traced back to 2001.
