Each year The Foundation hosts a half-day conference designed to inform, inspire, and raise the leadership temperature of our community.

The 2022 conference was hosted at IChurch on Sept 9th and attracted an audience totaling 430+ people. This event gave us the opportunity to spotlight local leaders including Shad Stringfellow of Clearwater Electric, Cassia Dowdy of Design Foundry, Brock Long of Hagerty Consulting and Vicki Murray of Safe Harbor.

The conference also served as the occasion for awarding the 2022 Catawba Valley Leadership Impact Award, which was presented to Ben Willis with The Western Piedmont Council of Government.
