The duties of the Leadership Ascension Committee include recruitment of each year’s leadership class, assisting the facilitator with preparation and review of program agendas, and establishing scholarship criteria. There are two subcommittees within Leadership Ascension, the Leadership Alumni Committee, which assists in the coordination of Alumni events, and the Golf Ascension Committee, which plans our annual golf tournament, Golf Ascension, designed to raise money for Leadership Ascension.
