Leadership Florida continually discovers and convenes committed individuals, enhancing and recharging their leadership skills by introducing them to a powerful community through whom they find knowledge and inspiration. We engage Floridians by providing essential information and a meaningful forum for their opinions, and create opportunities for shared experiences that are inviting, inspiring and of lasting value.
Dues, tuition and meeting registrations don’t cover all of Leadership Florida’s costs. We rely on tax-deductible gifts and sponsorships for nearly one-third of our revenue.
Our core strength is diversity—of opinion, age, gender, geography, skills, interests, experience, ethnicity, occupation, and political affiliation. We are unified in our respect for and accessibility to one another, and in our passion for Florida. Although leadership programs exist in many other states, none rivals Leadership Florida’s ambitious offerings for multiple levels of leadership, including:
Lifetime Membership: Would you like to become a Lifetime Member?
- Leadership Florida Cornerstone (40 years old and above),
- Leadership Florida Connect (25-39 years old),
- Leadership Florida Education (education focused-careers),
- Leadership Florida Executive (CEOs new to Florida),
- Before You Vote Debates (senate, gubernatorial and presidential), and
- Florida League of Mayors programming
Currently, 200 members have chosen this membership option, which works like this: Lifetime Members make a pledge of $6,000 to the Leadership Florida Endowment Fund and when the entire gift is completed, the donor is no longer responsible for paying annual dues. Over the long term, this is a great deal. The entire gift is tax-deductible and strengthens the health of Leadership Florida, allowing it the sound financial footing it needs to continue to fulfill its mission and serve its members. Pledges can be paid all at once (there is a 10% discount for gifts paid in one lump sum), or extended over a period of time up to five years. Those of you who respond to this invitation will be recognized in a special way at the Annual Meeting in June at The Ritz-Carlton Sarastoa. If you are interested in this opportunity, please call Chris Lucas, Leadership Florida’s Vice President of Operations and Chief of Staff, at (850) 521-1220, ext. 102 for more details.
