POWELL, Wyo. - Big Horn Basin businesses can apply until Dec. 7 for grants from the Wyoming Workforce Development Training Fund to attend a Management Meets Leadership training program offered in Cody beginning in January.

The second annual Management Meets Leadership series will convene from 6-9 p.m. on seven consecutive Tuesdays beginning Jan. 8.
