According to its website, the Leadership Los Alamos program is nine months in duration and has graduated nine classes. Program sessions are designed to address current issues facing the community. Each program session features speakers that are acknowledged leaders in their specific fields, while program participants actively engage in discussion and debate.
Program sessions are held in Los Alamos and the surrounding area in order to expose participants to the different aspects of the community and the local issues important to each topical area.
