2015 LJ Class

The Leadership Jacksonville class of 2015

Leadership Jacksonville, an organization that develops youth and adult leaders in Northeast Florida, recently celebrated the graduation of its 2015 Leadership Jacksonville class and selected participants for its 2016 program.

The year-long program brings together 56 leaders from throughout the community to learn about the First Coast, build relationships with other leaders and analyze major areas of community concern.

“Leadership Jacksonville program participants are some of the top leaders in our region,” said Deborah Moore, Senior Vice President and Marketing Director at EverBank and president of the Leadership Jacksonville Board of Directors. “Our program is an exceptional opportunity for participants to gain knowledge and new perspectives about the Jacksonville area while networking with others who are also inspired to build and strengthen their communities.”

Leadership Jacksonville recently selected its 2016 class, which will engage in two weekend retreats, nine day-long programs and independent course work. The opening retreat provides structured exercises that explore the dynamics of the urban society, leadership styles and decision-making through group process. Participants learn about the community, analyze critical program areas and issues and engage in networking and leadership development opportunities. The program culminates in a closing retreat that focuses on developing a personal vision and trustee commitment.

“Remaining engaged with the changes and advancements within our community is crucial for leaders. The Leadership Jacksonville program encourages interaction with community trustees regarding critical topics to learn more about Jacksonville and how we can make improvements together,” said Jill Langford Dame, executive director for Leadership Jacksonville. “We value our graduates and look forward to another great program year.”

The Leadership Jacksonville program actively solicits applications from all sectors of the community. Selection for each year’s class is highly competitive and criteria for selection include demonstrated leadership skills, active community involvement and a willingness to invest the time and energy required by the program. A conscientious effort is made to select participants who represent a cross-section of the community in terms of gender, race, age, income level and occupations. Classes are carefully balanced to represent the composition of the community.
