ABOUT THE LB CLASS GRADUATION & LB ALUMNI RENUION
Each May, we are proud to celebrate the culmination of a full year of community education, leadership development, and relationship building during the Leadership Boise Graduation & LB Alumni Reunion. The event is a chance to reunite with Leadership Boise alumni and welcome the incoming class to the Alumni Network! Additionally, Community Leadership Awards are presented.
COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARDS
Leadership Boise and the LB Alumni are pleased to recognize outstanding members of the community (who also happen to be Leadership Boise Alumni) and an exemplary nonprofit organization for epitomizing what it means to lead. Leadership Boise participants are introduced to countless opportunities and areas of growth that are unique. Participants spend time learning from one another as well as from community leaders, focus on better acquainting themselves with Boise’s inner workings and learn where and how to make a difference. In the end, Leadership Boise encourages program participants to become productive, contributing leaders. In the spirit of honoring important lessons learned and encouraging others to emulate outstanding leadership, the recognition categories include the following:
