Winning Capital Campaign! For the first time in its nearly 30 year history, a capital campaign was launched, and in eight months, all expectations were exceeded. “The Key to a Better Gwinnett” co-chaired by Tammy Shumate of Brand Mortgage and Dan King of King & Spalding (retired), turned their initial goal of $600,000 upside down by raising more than $900,000. Campaign success means Leadership Gwinnett can to turn a vision into a reality and embark on a five year strategic plan. Elements of the strategic plan include the announcement of a new short program, enhanced scholarship opportunities and more strategic outreach which will enable greater organizational impact for the county and region.

New Program Launches! Glance Gwinnett, a new two-and-a-half day short program is officially launched and ready for registrants. Glance Gwinnett offers a fascinating insider’s look at our community, gives attendees a quick glance of Leadership Gwinnett and a better sense of how to put leadership into action. Our flagship nine-month program has been providing intensive community leadership training for 30 years. Many cannot commit to the resources required and find themselves without an option to engage in the community. Glance Gwinnett fills that gap. Glance Gwinnett is even a great option for alumni from years ago who feel disconnected!
