Leadership Greater Little Rock is aimed at developing a network of competent leaders for present and future community needs. To meet this goal, LGLR seeks to:
- Identify and motivate individuals with leadership potential;
- Acquaint them with community needs, challenges and opportunities;
- Offer a forum of exchange on methods for dealing with community issues;
- Challenge potential leaders to become involved with local issues and the decision-making process.
Established in 1985, Leadership Greater Little Rock seeks to develop community leaders by training and informing participants on a wide array of local public policy issues and concerns. In-depth training sessions focus on these issues, exploring their background, origin and present-day status. The program covers a full slate of topics, including government, the area’s economy, education, social services and much more. The sessions combine lectures, tours, dialogue and interaction between speakers and participants.
