Forty-two people have been selected for the 2018-19 class of Leadership Tuscaloosa, a nine-month leadership development program.

Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama and the University of Alabama System, the program is designed to make each selected participant more aware of and sensitive to the wide range of needs and opportunities in the community through shared experiences with a cross section of highly capable fellow citizens.

Using field trips and interaction with community decision-makers, the program broadens understanding of issues facing our community. The class is comprised of 42 individuals chosen from a cross section of occupations through an interview process conducting by the Leadership Tuscaloosa Alumni Association.

Concetta Odongo of Michelin BF Goodrich will serve as the Chair for this year’s class. She is a 2015 graduate of Leadership Tuscaloosa and an active member of the Leadership Tuscaloosa Alumni Association.
