  LEADERSHIP GALVESTON
       SPRING 2006
    The Leadership Galveston program was revived during 1995 as a project of Galveston
College's Leadership Institute in partnership with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce. The
Leadership Galveston members now boast over 300 former graduates of diverse backgrounds
and experiences that studied the social and economic aspects of Galveston in previous
leadership classes between 1984-1990 and 1995-2005.
   The purpose of Leadership Galveston is to develop leaders by providing an educational
program on the needs, challenges, and service learning opportunities in the City of Galveston
and to provide motivation for the leadership candidates to become involved in Galveston's
future.
   Its objectives are to (1) Acquaint participants with Galveston's history, government,
economy and resources along with the problems and challenges facing the City; (2) Offer
participants the opportunity to meet and develop working relationships with current leaders
and decision makers; and (3) Encourage program participants to actively become involved in
community leadership roles.
   Acceptance in the program is based upon potential leadership skills, involvement in
community affairs and concern for the future of Galveston. As civic, business and government
leaders tackle current issues, a new generation of leadership is training to overcome the
obstacles that face Galveston and those that will arise in the coming years. Leadership
Galveston is a training ground, providing participants with the necessary skills to meet the
challenges.
