About the LEADership Book Club:

LEAD’s book clubs are an opportunity for regularly scheduled full and part-time employees to read a book or study a topic and to discuss the personal and professional applications of the topic. Book clubs are scheduled about three times a year and employees gather over breakfast at a resturant from the LEAD cities of Batavia, Elgin, and St. Charles.

The LEAD team welcomes book club suggestions and topic ideas. Email Jennifer Kuhn at jenkuhn@strongercommunity.net or call her at 630-762-7090.
