Leadership Jacksonville, an organization that develops youth and adult leaders in Northeast Florida, announces that Executive Director Isabelle Owen Spence will retire in May 2013. Spence has served as the executive director of the organization since 2001. The announcement was made today during the annual Reunion Luncheon for Leadership Jacksonville graduates.

Spence is a graduate of the Leadership Jacksonville class of 1987 and volunteered with the organization for many years, including serving on its board of directors from 1999 to 2001. During her tenure as executive director, Spence has overseen the development of several new programs including the annual New Leadership Summit, which launched in 2003, and the College Leadership Experience (CLE), which launched in 2005 under the direction of Meg Folds.
