Apply for the Regional Leadership Institute Today

Do you want to learn more about the issues impacting the Atlanta region and how you can get involved? The Regional Leadership Institute (RLI) brings together leaders interested in learning about key issues shaping metro Atlanta and engaging in building a stronger region.

Today’s regional challenges require a new problem-solving capacity, interdisciplinary thinking, and the ability to work across political, geographical, and institutional boundaries.

Through the Regional Leadership Institute RLI, leaders gain a broader awareness of the region in which they live, work, and play. They also develop a region-wide network of other leaders interested in working across disciplines and boundaries. Through a week-long, intensive program in Savannah, participants are introduced to issues, challenges, and opportunities facing metro Atlanta.

RLI seeks to accomplish three distinct goals:

EDUCATE LEADERS about the processes, programs, opportunities and challenges that impact the 10-county Atlanta region;

STIMULATE INTEREST and encourage leadership and engagement in regional affairs;

FOSTER A NETWORK of community-minded leaders of diverse backgrounds and sectors who will lead in a spirit of collaboration that fosters regional prosperity.

If you are interested in bettering the region, building greater knowledge, and connecting to a network of regional leaders apply! If you know a leader(s) who would be a great candidate encourage them to apply!
