    The core values of Leadership Westerville are civic engagement, stewardship, and community collaboration. 



    We are pleased to announce a partnership between the Leadership Westerville board and the Westerville Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber will serve in the capacity of manager for this program and perform, as needed the day-to-day management and operation of the Leadership Westerville programs and related activities.
