LEAD Atlanta Alumni

Welcome to the LEAD Atlanta Alumni Page

In 2011, Leadership Atlanta launched the LEAD Atlanta Alumni Association in order to better serve the growing body of LEAD Atlanta alumni. Through programmatic and social events, the Alumni Association aims to maintain and maximize relationships among LEAD Atlanta alumni in order to better the metro Atlanta community. Continued opportunities for professional and personal development will allow alumni to continue their leadership growth and will encourage greater community engagement. Online communication hubs will allow LEAD Atlanta alumni to interact with and assist one another in their civic endeavors.
