"A strong community requires talented leaders that are invested in and knowledgeable of the issues facing the community they wish to serve. Leadership Albany masterfully balances leadership development and community awareness. It is important to not only develop practical business skills, but we must also anchor those skills to this locality. Leadership Albany's program encourages a sense of connection and commitment to the Albany area. As I reflect back on my Leadership Albany class year, while I appreciated the knowledge earned and the relationships developed, the greatest asset so far has been to my sense of community awareness and connection."
~Victoria S. Darrisaw - Judge, Dougherty County State Court and LA '09
"As a result of participating in Leadership Albany 2017, I have a greater appreciation for this city. I've also renewed my commitment and efforts as a leader in this community to seeing our city positively progress and operate in its fullest potential in growth and production."
