What is WAVE?
The West Kentucky Alliance for a Vibrant Economy or WAVE is a strategic partnership of Ballard, Carlisle, Fulton, Hickman and McCracken Counties in Kentucky. These counties share many of the same assets: small town compassion, strategic location at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, extraordinary ecology and culture, first-class education, strong agriculture tradition and access to social services. Recognizing the need to take a proactive approach to economic development, we have joined together to increase the economic vitality of our region in order to create a better economic environment for our entire region. We invite you to spend some time on our website and become a part of the Kentucky WAVE movement!

WAVE Leadership is a leadership development program coordinated by the The West Kentucky Alliance for a Vibrant Economy (WAVE).
