Lunch with a Leader is a continuing education program for Leadership Kitsap Alumni. Join regional leaders for lunch and hear the stories of their leadership journeys. The conversations will be organic, thought-provoking, and alumni-lead.

Open to the first 12 alumni who register.

While there is NO CHARGE for this opportunity, if you do not show up and you do not cancel within 12 hours of the event, you will be billed $15 for your lunch. We anticipate a waiting list of others who would enjoy the opportunity to attend.
