Leadership North Fulton Recognizes 2021 Graduates
The North Fulton Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc. has recognized the 20-person cohort of the Leadership North Fulton class of 2021.

Leadership North Fulton 

The Program
Leadership North Fulton (LNF), has been the region’s signature leadership development program for more than 30 years. Each year, graduating participants join the ranks of more than 500 LNF alumni and continue to invest in our communities through their time and talent.

The Purpose
Pillars of the program include promoting community awareness, instilling civic responsibility, and building relationships. Participants engage civic leaders through program class days, and many alumni have gone on to serve on community non-profit boards or as elected officials. The relationships that are forged through participation and investment in LNF by business and nonprofit partners continue to affirm the program’s foundational role in community leadership development.

The Project
LNF service projects continue to impact the region in a lasting way. Notable examples include the founding of The Drake House in 2004 and the Emerging Leaders Youth Program in 2009, as well as the establishment of The Drake House Young Professionals Advisory Council in 2017 and the creation of the North Metro Miracle League (NMML) golf tournament started in 2005 and continuing today..
