A statewide program of Alabama leaders engaged in creating a network for positive change know as Leadership Alabama, announced the members of its 2017-2018 class.

Since 1989, Leadership Alabama has given established leaders across Alabama exposure to the broader fabric of the state. It develops a network of relationships and provides a structure for this network to seek mutual understanding of problems and priorities for Alabama’s future. Leadership Alabama encourages its members to act individually and in concert to move forward to help our state reach its full potential.

During the program year, class members will meet in Montgomery, Mobile, Huntsville and Birmingham. Presentations and group discussions will encourage them to make a critical examination of preconceptions about their state, their communities and themselves. Leadership Alabama is a lifelong experience, and as members, these leaders will continue to impact positive change in their communities.

Leadership Alabama welcomes area new members Bill Hopkins, Jr., Superintendent of the Morgan County School System and Jody Singer, Deputy Director, NASA-Marshall Space Flight Center.

Leadership Alabama appreciates the support of area board member Melissa Craig.

The 2017-2018 Leadership Alabama Board Chairman Tyrone Fenderson said he is excited about the impact they will make with the knowledge they have developed throughout the program.

“Leadership Alabama helps amplify the voice of its members through deliberate exposure and access to resources that inform their perspectives and empowers their curiosities,” Fenderson said. “This new class of distinguished leaders will spend the next year broadening their understanding of the state’s opportunities and challenge.”

According to Executive Director Barbara Larson, the program has two goals: education and networking.

“By examining topics such as education, politics, economic development and diversity, Leadership Alabama increases the number of effective leaders having a sound understanding of the broad spectrum of issues affecting our state,” Larson said. “The success of the program is apparent when members respond and take action, becoming vital contributors to progress for Alabama.”
