Leadership Northeast Announcement

A committee comprised of the University’s Leadership Northeast (formerly Leadership-Wilkes-Barre) alumni will select a nominee from the University for Leadership’s 2023-24 class.

Anyone interested in being the Wilkes nominee is asked to submit a letter of interest that addresses the question: How do you think the Leadership Northeast program can help you fulfill your aspirations as a leader at Wilkes and in Northeastern Pennsylvania?

If you have asked to be considered a candidate for Leadership Northeast in previous years, the selection committee asks that you reconfirm your interest by submitting the aforementioned letter. Also, be sure that you have the support of your supervisor before sending your letter.

Please send letters of interest via email to Mark Allen at by the end of the day on Friday, April 7th.

Leadership Northeast brings together new and emerging leaders throughout the greater Wilkes-Barre area to:

1) inform and expose participants to community concerns, problems, challenges and potential solutions;

2) provide an opportunity for participants to meet and exchange ideas; and

3) motivate and encourage participants to assume leadership roles in community affairs.

Leadership Northeast’s Core Program meets once each month from 8:30 a.m to 5 p.m., September through May. The opening retreat requires a two-day commitment.

Please visit the Leadership Northeast website to learn more about the program.
