The Conway Area Leadership Institute prepares emerging leaders to serve the Conway community. Through shared experiences and frequent interactions, participants will engage in an eight-month curriculum inspired by Conway2025.

Conway2025 is a long-range strategic plan developed with the input of more than 1,400 area residents. This plan identifies seven sectors of importance for the overall growth and sustainability of Conway:

  • Keep Conway Learning
  • Keep Conway Working
  • Keep Conway Building
  • Keep Conway Safe
  • Keep Conway Active
  • Keep Conway Creative
  • Keep Conway Moving
  • The Conway You Don't See

Class participants are highly motivated individuals who are interested in learning, pursuing first-hand experience, and interacting with community leaders, businesses, and organizations. Upon graduation, the Conway community will welcome a dynamic group of men and women fully equipped to take action and work toward a better Conway.


The application process for the Conway Area Leadership Institute begins in December. Participants will take part in a two-day class retreat held in April followed by monthly programming. The leadership program culminates with a graduation ceremony in January.

Class Size:

35 participants
