Message from the Director

I would like to take a brief moment to wish everyone connected to our Leadership Oakland Family a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and a Joyous New Year.  I know that we are all looking forward to turning the page on 2020 and ringing in all the possibility that comes with 2021. 

However, I would be remis in turning the page too quickly.  At Leadership Oakland we still have work to do and we are asking for your help in a different way this year.  This week we have launched a new Leadership Oakland Alumni Association (LOAA) Plus Campaign that not only asks for you to join or renew your membership in LOAA, but to also consider a philanthropic donation to one of three special initiatives of Leadership Oakland;

Expanding Junior Leadership Oakland Curriculum

A Dedicated Cornerstone Scholarship Fund

Investing in Advancing Leadership Oakland

Each area has its own unique merits and represents a key initiative of Leadership Oakland for 2021 1) to expand our highly successful Junior Leadership Oakland, 2) to increase the amount and number of available Cornerstone Scholarships available for entrepreneurs, small businesses and minority and women owned businesses and 3) to continue to develop the necessary financial resources to reinvest in Leadership Oakland and maintain our status as the premier leadership and networking organization serving Southeast Michigan. 

This is an important time for Leadership Oakland.  We have made tremendous progress in a challenging and tumultuous time, but we know that we must continue to grow and push the boundaries of leadership development and training if we are to continue to succeed in this changed world.  We have all seen first-hand that leadership matters and we are counting on you to help us continue to lead from the front here in Oakland County and Southeast Michigan.

Please note that the portion of your dues that exceeds "fair market value" may be considered as a donation.*
