Leadership Team

Leadership DeKalb is coordinated by a staff that is committed to bringing a positive impact to the community.

As a volunteer-driven and membership-oriented organization, members have the opportunity to shape Leadership DeKalb by participating as a member of the Board of Directors, who oversee the organization, or as a committee member, who assist in the planning of various programs.
