Leadership Alabama gives established leaders across Alabama exposure to the broader fabric of the state. During the program year, class members will convene in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery, where they will hear challenging presentations and participate in class discussions that encourage them to make critical and thoughtful assessments of the state and its issues, while learning of initiatives aimed at addressing those issues.
“The Leadership Alabama Class XXX encompasses the top leaders and agents of change in Alabama,” Leadership Alabama board chairman Gordon Martin said. “We are excited to see what we can accomplish this year as we continue to work to create a state that fosters innovation and growth today and in the decades to come.”
Since its founding in 1990, over 1500 citizen leaders in Alabama have participated in the Leadership Alabama program. These members are selected based on their leadership abilities, career accomplishments, volunteer activities, contributions to their communities and commitment to help shape a better Alabama.
