AKRON, OH - For over thirty-five years, Leadership Akron has inspired participants to advance their involvement and impact as community leaders. In keeping with that mission, Leadership Akron has selected, BMD Attorney, Michael A. Steel, for its 2019/2020 Signature Program. The class of 40 local community leaders reflects a diverse representation of participants from Greater Akron’s business, government, and nonprofit sectors.
Over the course of the year, Leadership Akron Signature Class 36 will develop a well-rounded perspective of the community to set the stage for further involvement as civic-minded leaders. The class will spend a full day each month focused on a sector of the community, in an immersive, experiential atmosphere exposing them to organizations, top decision-makers, and challenges within that sector. Upon graduation, the class will be poised with new knowledge and connections to further empower their service to the community.
Since 1984, Leadership Akron has equipped participants for more effective community involvement and leadership. In addition to its Signature Program, Leadership Akron also offers Junior Leadership Akron, Diversity on Board, NEXT, and other Community Leadership Institutes.
