Editorial: Emerging Leaders

Show me a community prospering and vibrant and you can be assured it has visionary leadership.

Emerge Young Professionals, a new community group of leaders under 40 has just formed.

We applaud your enthusiasm and encourage you to contribute your talents to make our community attractive to everyone.

We also congratulate the new Leadership Montgomery class members and encourage you to apply what you learn over the next year into making our community better.

This is the 25th class of Leadership Montgomery and a new alumni development group is working to reconnect the graduates from the previous classes and challenge all to help realize Montgomery's potential to affect positive change.

A Diversity Summit and first annual Women in Business Forum are just two upcoming events where both the Leadership Montgomery alumni and new young professionals group will participate together and the hundreds of members of both groups will no doubt offer many ways to lead our River Region into a 21st century model for citizenship.

Your leadership is welcome!
