Atlantic Leadership Forum 2013
We have successfully organized this year's Atlantic Leadership Forum in partnership with Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) at GBI Headquarters in Decatur.
This year, faculty members from University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Valdosta State University, Morehouse College and Southern Polytechnic State University nominated in total 27 students to participate in the forum. We were joined by 12 directors and inspectors from GBI including Dawn Diedrich, Director of Office of Privacy and Compliance, Rusty Andrews, Deputy Director of the Investigative Division and Dan Kirk, Assistant Director. Other mentors included Vic Bell of CAPTRUST Financial Advisors, John Ford of Emory University and Senator Jeff Mullis of Georgia State Senate.
The forum provided a venue for the students from social science, and business backgrounds where they had the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with the leaders in the community. The program ended with photo-opp with the GBI officials. We are planning to have the second round of Atlantic Leadership Forum in May 2013 and already started to accept nominations from all higher educational institutions in the State of Georgia.
