Tallahassee, FL, July 2019 – Leadership Florida® announces its Board of Directors and Leadership Team for the 2019-2020 program year. The Leadership Team, which includes the Board of Directors, is tasked with ensuring Leadership Florida can pursue its mission of convening a statewide community of committed leaders to enhance and recharge their leadership skills and to educate and inspire them to work across their strengths and diversities for a better Florida.
Since 1982, Leadership Florida, a respected non-partisan convener, has taken the lead in Florida for training and developing leaders with a statewide, rather than parochial, view of our state’s resources and needs. The organization produces educational programming for a wide spectrum of Florida’s leaders, including chief executive officers new to the state, seasoned business and nonprofit executives, elected officials, young professionals, leaders in Florida K-12 education, and top college and university students. Its members are diverse in opinion, age, gender, geography, skills, interests, experience, ethnicity, occupation, and political affiliation, but unified in their respect for one another, and in their commitment to building a better state for all our citizens.
“I am very grateful and proud of what our past Board of Directors was able to accomplish in our previous program year,” said Leadership Florida’s 2019-2020 Board Chairman Jim Gilmore, “We have selected the next group of amazing leaders to guide the organization for the coming year, and I have no doubt they will continue to lead our organization to new heights.”
