History

Leadership DebateOriginally dubbed the Greater Little Rock Leadership Institute, LGLR is an initiative of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce. Following adoption of the program in 1985 by the Chamber’s Board of Directors, Jim Dailey was named first Chairman of the program, while Jimmy Moses was appointed to head the Curriculum Committee. Volunteers have served in these positions in each succeeding year. Approximately 50 participants are selected each year. The program, now run by an independent board of trustees, promotes the involvement of its members in the community, generating enthusiasm and new community leadership beyond what was envisioned in 1985.
