Duluth, Georgia (June 10, 2014) — Forty local leaders have been selected for the Leadership Gwinnett Class of 2015 — the 30th class of Leadership Gwinnett’s signature program for established community leaders. Since 1985, Leadership Gwinnett has ensured that the community’s most influential and esteemed leaders are knowledgeable about issues, well networked and passionate about the success of the county and region. Armed with new knowledge, connections and perspectives, Leadership Gwinnett graduates are prepared to take their places as effective community leaders. The program year kicks off in August with orientation and will include two overnight retreats, seven learning days covering topics such as leadership in a world class community, infrastructure, economics, education, health & human services, justice and regional relations, as well as monthly study groups, exclusive tours and hands-on experiences.

“Choosing the class requires balancing the occupations, qualifications and commitment of the candidates to insure a representation that reflects a cross section of the county. The caliber of these applicants makes selection more difficult. Since the class size is limited to 40, many excellent candidates are not chosen on their first nomination. For this reason, we strongly encourage candidates to apply again if not selected,” said Lisa Zaken, Executive Director, Leadership Gwinnett.

“Leadership Gwinnett has been a tremendous success for our county. Since the program’s inception in 1985, 998 alumni have taken their places in our community as decision makers and role models. This Class of 2015 earns a special distinction as the 30th anniversary class of Leadership Gwinnett. Graduates can be found in every aspect of Gwinnett business, civic and cultural life,” said June Sweat, General

Chair, Leadership Gwinnett, LEED Facilitator with GreenPoint US, LLC and retired administrator from Gwinnett County Public Schools.
