Tempe Leadership has been cultivating local leaders since 1985. This year 21 individuals were chosen through a competitive application and interview process carried out by a Selection Committee. The nine-month program is designed to increase awareness and understanding of the community, leadership development, opportunities for engagement and to expand class member’s network of personal and professional relationships.
