MEMPHIS, Tenn., January 31, 2020 – Leadership Memphis welcomed its Spring 2020 FastTrack class Saturday, January 25 at Crosstown Concourse.

31 leaders from a diverse group of organizations came together to build relationships and better understand their connection to the city. Brad Federman (CEO, Performance Point LLC) spoke to them about community leadership and challenged the class to take what they learn and be stronger leaders in their own communities.

“After meeting the new class and seeing their excitement on day one, I have no doubt they will be outstanding,” said David Williams, President/CEO of Leadership Memphis. “As the program continues, this class will be better equipped to tackle issues facing the city while enhancing Memphis’ positives.”

Leadership Memphis’ FastTrack program takes emerging leaders with high potential and puts them through a nine-week program designed to expand their knowledge of the community and encourage them to work together to create positive change. Graduation for the Spring 2020 class is set for April 4.
