Concerned by citizen apathy, a group of local leaders has launched the Leaders Lead Locally Institute (LLLI) in Mt. Vernon.
LLLI will bring together exceptional emerging leaders with known exceptional leaders to face key challenges in leadership.
"Building Bridges for Legacy Leadership is the five-word expression this leadership institute uses to present the community our vision and values," said Rabbi D. F. Eukel, chairman.
The inaugural meeting is slated to get underway at 6:45 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 9 in the Fireside Room at the Mount Vernon Arts and Recreation Center, formerly Church on the Loop, at 822 W. Mt. Vernon Blvd., off the Business Loop in Mt. Vernon.
