- The attached pdf describes some brief, affordable leadership courses being conducted locally by College of Charleston. Although we do not have any experience with these, they look promising. If you attend any of them or know about the speakers, please provide feedback to WSI/ARROW Coordinator, Megan McDonough so that we know whether to continue promoting these opportunities.
