    DURHAM - Leadership Seacoast, a local non-profit organization committed to the development of informed and active community leaders, kicked off its program year with a retreat held at The Browne Center for Innovative Learning in Durham. Sponsored by Northeast Credit Union, the day-long event welcomed 40 members to the Class of 2019.
