Sen. Hardie Davis Hosts Meet and Greet with Augusta’s New Leaders Council

AUGUSTA (October 15, 2014) |  Sen. Hardie Davis (Augusta) and the Augusta chapter of New Leaders Council (NLC) held a meet and greet Tuesday, October 14, at Café 209. The chapter, formed in 2013, is currently seeking and recruiting young professionals who aspire to become engaged civic leaders in the community. The inaugural class of the NLC was in attendance to greet potential new members and answer any questions.

“The turnout we had at last night’s event gives me hope that the next generation of community leaders will not only be strong and tireless advocates, but also build confidence and a willingness to give back to our community,” said Senator Davis.

New Leaders Council (NLC) is a non-profit organization that works to train and promote the progressive political entrepreneurs of tomorrow in order to create civically-engaged leaders in business and industry. The signature NLC program is the NLC Institute, a five-month fellowship running from January through May of each year. Across the nation, NLC recruits passionate, entrepreneurial young men and women from outside traditional power structures and equips them with the skills necessary to be leaders in their communities and careers.
