Executive Forum 2021

Leading Now,
The 2021 Leadership Augusta Executive Forum Class (LAEF) wrapped up their program over the weekend experiencing both educational and exciting opportunities our city has to offer. This multi-day retreat for executives and their spouses presents an overview of life in the Augusta area and encourages frank and open discussion of important problems and issues.
This program would not be possible without the support of many community partners.
