NACC's monthly Lunch with a Leader series highlights one local Leader in a casual, friendly, sit-down atmosphere. Sit side-by-side community leaders and fellow chamber members as we learn about both the professional and personal journey of our leaders over a 3-course lunch. Registration is required as we are unable to accommodate walk-ins with limited seating.
