Atlantic Leadership Forum 2014 "Leadership in Public Service"
Atlantic Leadership Forum (ALF) happened last week with a good number of participation at the Georgia State Capitol. Our guest speakers were John Ford (former vice-president of Emory University), Representative Valencia Stovall, Representative Mike Cheokas, Representative Stacey Abrams's Executive Assistant Falak Hindash, Senator Steve Henson's Legislative Assistant Robbie Henson. They shared their wonderful experience and a short story of their lives to enlighten the participants path of life.
ALF is a leadership program designed to support undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds to develop and strengthen their leadership skills. The main goal of ALF is to give students who are attending a college or university in the State of Georgia a vision for serving the community with a global perspective, by forging connections with locally, nationally, and internationally-renowned leaders and public servants.
ALF programs are designed to create opportunities for participants to bridge the gap between the theory and practice of leadership skills necessary to thrive in their future professional careers. Together with sponsoring institutions, twice a year ALF identifies undergraduate and graduate students and organizes a luncheon to introduce them to leaders in the community.
The program ended with the group photos and the tour of Capitol Building. Looking forward to see you all next time! Below you can see the pictures from the program.
