Leadership Long Beach (LLB) invites the community to learn more about the programs and activities of the organization at its Leadership Connections event/reception on Monday, March 2 from 5:30 PM to 7 PM at the BO beau kitchen + roof tap, 144 Pine Avenue. This free event will be an informational meet-and-greet for interested individuals who would like to learn how to get more involved and connected in Long Beach plus get details on selection process for the Leadership Long Beach Institute that starts this Fall. RSVPs are welcome and can be made at http://leadershipconnections2015.eventbrite.com.
The goals for the adult programs include connecting people of diverse backgrounds with demonstrated leadership abilities and a commitment for the future of Long Beach; providing an educational experience that encompasses all aspects of the city; and creating a strong network of alumni who can serve as resources for the community. LLB prides itself on incorporating principles, core values and ethics to the leadership and informational sessions in order to have the participants gain a fuller understanding of the city and the region.
In addition to providing prospective program participants information about LLB programs, Leadership Connections is a Spring mixer for LLB alumni to gather and network while they get information about upcoming events, activities and opportunities. In the coming months, LLB will have community service projects completed by its youth and adult LLB programs, and the youth and adult graduation events.
About Leadership Long Beach:
Leadership Long Beach was founded in 1989 by some of our community’s most influential and visionary stakeholders. These founders envisioned the formation of a civic improvement program that would serve the community by educating and motivating leaders on issues important to the future and sustainability of our city. The leaders produced by the Leadership Long Beach program have shared experiences, associations and values that enable them to set imaginative, yet realistic goals, and achieve them through coordinated and effective strategies. Leadership Long Beach has three principled leadership programs – the Institute, Youth Leadership Long Beach and Executive Quick Start – as well as offers continual leadership and networking opportunities throughout the year.
