The Leadership Georgia Board of Trustees is excited to begin selecting the next “Best Class Ever.”  Nominations are now open for the Class of 2025, and we need your help in identifying dynamic, emerging leaders from around the state who love and care about Georgia as much as we do.

Each year, the Leadership Georgia Board of Trustees strives to select a class of 63 individuals who represent the best and brightest of the great state of Georgia. We concentrate on diversity of race, gender, geographic region, and background in the selections process, as well as our founders’ mandate that two-thirds of the class be composed of individuals representing the business community. We are proud of our past recruitment efforts and grateful for your partnership in identifying potential class members, as nominations and subsequent applications continue to be strong year in and year out.

We are proud that the class of 2024 is dynamic and diverse, but such a class starts with a strong applicant pool.  As alumni and supporters of Leadership Georgia, you play a vital role in ensuring the application pool is representative of the state of Georgia. The Board of Trustees asks you to consider nominating at least one emerging leader for the Class of 2025. Nominees typically range from 25 to 45 years of age. Please also keep in mind past applicants who have not yet been selected to participate in Leadership Georgia.  We encourage you to nominate them again. Additionally, the Board of Trustees hopes to see nominations more representative of the agriculture, rural, minority, and business populations as the applicant pool has become increasingly less reflective of these populations.

Please note that candidates cannot self-nominate and must be nominated either by a Leadership Georgia alumnus or from any chamber of commerce from within our state.

To nominate someone for the Class of 2025, the next “Best Class Ever,” nominations must be submitted no later than 5:00p.m. on Friday, March 22, 2024. Click HERE to submit nominations.
