From Uptown to Downtown, Leadership Long Beach Relocates its Offices
2012-03-05 · By Editor
After seven-plus years at its Bixby Knolls location, Leadership Long Beach (LLB) has moved their offices further south on Atlantic Avenue sharing space with a community partner, PeaceBuilders, at 743 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90813. The organization will not miss a beat, though, in meeting its mission of developing and connecting principled leaders to strengthen the community.
Leadership Long Beach is the premier principled leadership nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating and encouraging individuals as leaders to participate in making Long Beach a better community. Through experiential learning and in-depth discussions, programs are conducted in the community introducing both adult and youth participants to community leaders, experts and agencies to increase their knowledge of Long Beach and the surrounding cities.
“Over the last 18 months, we have maintained a smaller working staff, and we had more unused space in our former location,” said Jeff Williams, Executive Director of Leadership Long Beach. ”This move makes us even more financially able to serve our alumni and the community. We’re glad one of our community partners, PeaceBuilders, is able to share space that fits our organizational needs.”
“We are honored to welcome Leadership Long Beach into our family,” stated Michelle Molina, President and CEO of PeaceBuilders. “We are pleased to provide them a safe, happy and peaceful environment in which to further their goals in the community. We look forward to partnering with LLB in years to come.”
The office relocation is not impacting the organization’s functioning. On March 5th, the Institute program will begin its government and media class day at City Hall, the youth program will have their next class day on March 11th as they prepare for their community service project, and the LLB Alumni Council hosted an evening event on March 1st. In addition, Leadership Long Beach will host “Leadership Connections,” an informational reception on Monday, March 5 for individuals interested in joining its upcoming principled leadership programs for 2012.

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 developing and motivating leaders on issues important to the future and sustainability of our city. The leaders developed 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 – Leadership Long Beach Institute, Youth Leadership Long Beach and Executive Quick Start – and also offers continual leadership and networking opportunities throughout the year.
