45 Area Professionals Chosen for 2023-2024 Class of Leadership Tuscaloosa
Nearly four dozen professionals working in West Alabama have been selected to learn and network extensively as members of this year's class of Leadership Tuscaloosa.
The program, hosted annually by the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, runs nearly all year and dedicates entire days each month to teaching the class about how specific parts of West Alabama operate.
From public safety to health care, primary and secondary education, industrial operations and much more, the 45 members will spend the next year learning more about almost every corner of the region.
The nine-month program is designed to leave participants aware of and sensitive to all the places in Tuscaloosa County that require informed, responsible, and effective leadership, the Chamber said.
