Opportunity Tallahassee



Opportunity Tallahassee is an intensive, one-day overview of our community.  This program is designed to acquaint participants with the physical, social, economic, and educational structure of Tallahassee.  In addition to meeting & networking with some of the area’s key decision-makers, Opportunity Tallahassee participants will be given contacts & resources to enable them to become more effectively involved in community issues.

This program is targeted to corporate executives, managers, and other professionals who may be new to the community & want to know more about the area with a minimum expenditure of time.  It is especially valuable for leaders or potential leaders whose professional commitments have precluded participation in the more time-intensive LT program.

Opportunity Tallahassee is offered once a year and requires a full one-day commitment.
