APPLY TO THE INSTITUTE
Interested in applying? Please provide the following information and we will send you a link to the online application.
WMI participants aren’t sitting in auditoriums like typical leadership development programs. They’re sitting around the table with some of the top minds and leaders in Northwest Arkansas’ rich and diverse business community, processing deep faith and business concepts and applying them in a real-time and practical way. The most talented young professionals are looking for depth and authenticity, development and opportunity, and a rich community of peers and mentors to help them achieve more and make a faster impact. WMI gives them that.
Bottom line, they will leave their WMI experience at a whole new level of leadership. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jim Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
