Tallahassee
Leadership

Our leadership structure consists of two levels of engagement with a tiered financial investment.

The Council of Governors is the sole governing body of the Partnership, charged with prioritizing the issues we undertake and setting the strategic direction of the organization, with participation reserved for the company’s CEO or highest-ranking local executive.

Additional support comes from the Leadership Council, whose members are on the frontline of our efforts to understand and address the challenges we face as a region.

Membership is by invitation only.
