Leadership Venango Graduation Set for May 25

The Chamber is excited to celebrate the Leadership Venango Class of 2022 with a mixer-style graduation reception and ceremony on May 25 at Wanango Country Club in Reno.

This year’s class started with 16 members, losing one a few months in, when Akshay Kumbhare moved to Florida for a job opportunity. Since their two-day retreat in September, the participants have been fully engaged, really making the most of the nine-month program.

The class recently toured three local businesses— Komatsu, Webco, and Klapec Trucking Company—during one of their recent sessions. Participant Kelly Smerker said: “I really enjoyed the tours of the local businesses. You have no idea what’s involved in an operation until you get inside the building and see for yourself.”

The class was split into three teams to work on team projects, which will be presented to a limited audience ahead of the graduation ceremony.

Invitations have been sent out with details on the graduation reception and ceremony. Congratulations Class of 2022!

Applications are available now for the Class of 2023. Visit for more information!
