Annual Alumni Summit & New Class Welcome Reception

Purpose:  To provide an informative, educational, and networking opportunity for the 503 Leadership Middle Tennessee (LMT) alumni from across the 10-counties of Middle Tennessee.  To network the incoming LMT class with our alumni on their first class day.

History:  Each year we invite our LMT alumni and new class members to gather together for professional development and networking.  Historically our topics have included transit, education, workforce development, health, renewable energy, entrepreneurship, and personal and social branding.

Annual Alumni Summit-9/7/17

This year our topic will be Sports City USA — how Nashville has become a Sports Hub. What can we do as leaders and LMT alumni from across the region, working across the traditional county lines, to support this trend? To help ensure regional quality of place and prosperity, we must work across the lines.
