Celebrating 40 Years of Preparing and Mobilizing Leaders

Leadership Memphis is turning 40 and we couldn’t have done it without the 3,377 individuals who have participated in a Leadership Memphis program and are now alumni. We couldn’t have done it without the dozens of companies and hundreds of alumni who financially support the organization each year. We couldn’t have done it without the individuals who give generously of their time to be presenters and panelists, those who have been a member of the Leadership Memphis staff, and certainly not without the many people who have served on the Leadership Memphis board over these 40 years. Join us as we celebrate 40 years of rich history impacting change in Memphis and look ahead to the next 40 years and beyond.
