“As I was new to the area, Leadership North Fulton allowed me to immediately gain awareness of the economic, social and political needs of the community,” said Jeff Petrea of Southern Co. and a 2013 Leadership North Fulton graduate. “Additionally, it was a tremendous opportunity to build relationships with peer LNF participants.”
The cost to participate is $1,800 for current chamber members and $2,000 for non-members.
