Area Leaders to Study Challenges, Opportunities Facing Atlanta Region

29 August, 2014 by Nickel Works in Blog

The Atlanta Regional Commission has selected 56 public, private and nonprofit leaders from the metro Atlanta area to study the region’s major opportunities and challenges during the 25th annual Regional Leadership Institute (RLI).

RLI is a weeklong leadership immersion program in which experienced and emerging leaders from the Atlanta region learn more about local and national trends and key issues, and share experiences and knowledge relevant to advancing the Atlanta region.  They will also learn about the other organizations represented in the program and how they can all collaborate to ensure the best possible future for metro Atlanta.

“This leadership program brings together people who are already leaders in their local communities and helps them see things through a regional and national lens,” said Doug Hooker, ARC executive director. “RLI helps community leaders reach across jurisdictional lines and develop the strong ties necessary for a regional stewardship network. This type of regional vision and cooperation is critical for the future of the Atlanta region.”
