Current Leadership Atlanta Class


The core of Leadership Atlanta's programming is our signature nine-month, executive-level series. We choose approximately 85 established leaders each year to represent a broad cross-section of metro Atlanta. Through retreats, full-day seminars, service projects, discussion groups and community tours, members explore critical community issues, examine themselves as leaders and build relationships of trust and mutual understanding.
