Regional Leadership Institute

Congratulations RLI Class of 2014!!

This year's Regional Leadership class was one of the best yet!  Leaders from across the metro region discussed topics regarding water resources, transportation, and economic development. As well as issues of changing demographics, the region's education and workforce development needs and equity for all of the region's citizens.

The class was given the charge to be actively engaged in the issues that shape our region and they seemed up to the challenge!  Congratulations again to the 2014 RLI class.
