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 requires a full, one-day commitment.
A typical day-long agenda may include the following:
- Welcome & Icebreaker
- Community Economic Vitality Report
