WBCNA & Leadership Huntsville/Madison Co. Partner to Expand Unique Program for Growth Entrepreneurs

HUNTSVILLE, AL – The Women’s Business Center of North Alabama (WBCNA) is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Leadership Huntsville/Madison County. This unique partnership will help to expand the WBCNA’s Board of Advisors program by connecting WBCNA growth entrepreneurs with industry experts from the Leadership Alumni members.

When asked about why this is a good fit for their organization, Leadership CEO Sarah Savage stated, “Leadership Huntsville/Madison County’s mission is to identify, educate, inspire and connect leaders to community needs. In fact, our Management Academy program focuses on the implementation of excellence in small business management and leadership. Among our program alumni, there is a wealth of talent, breadth of intellect and dedication to innovation. We look forward to connecting these leaders with WBCNA clients to not only help grow the small businesses in our community, but also to help them strive for excellence as they expand.”

WBCNA CEO Joanne Randolph shared her enthusiasm as well. “We are very excited about our new partnership with Leadership Huntsville/Madison County. As a graduate of Leadership Class 13, and a member of the Alumni association, I cannot think of a better opportunity for our clients than to have access to Leadership alumni with such a vast array of expertise and connections.”

Established in 2003, WBCNA has provided free business coaching and cost-effective, quality training programs for over 15,000 individuals. As WBCNA has grown, so have many of their clients’ businesses. To better serve these growing businesses, WBCNA established a Board of Advisors (BOA) program to connect growth entrepreneurs with area leaders to serve as advisors as their company grows. These top-tier advisors are industry experts in a variety of subjects, as well as leaders in their own fields.

Launched in 1987, Leadership Huntsville/Madison County’s purpose is “to develop current and future leaders for our community.” Since their first class, Leadership has provided advanced leadership training and unique community service opportunities for a variety of area leaders. They continue to do so with their multi-level leadership programs, such as their Flagship Leadership program, as well as their Focus, Challenge, Connect, and Impact programs. In 2011, Leadership added their Management Academy for affordable, local training of our community’s business leaders, and their Masters program to help seasoned talent develop an active, meaningful retirement.
