Bryan ColeAs a resident of Central Florida since 1969, I have witnessed the vast amount of change that my "hometown" has experienced. Being a participant in Leadership Orlando has given me and my classmates the opportunity to see, hear and be exposed to what is in store for not only Orlando and Central Florida, but also the "Super Region" that encompass us.

I encourage anyone, whether you are new to Central Florida or have been a resident for a lifetime, to participate in Leadership Orlando and be "in the know" on what the future holds for Your Home and Our Community.

Derrick M. ValkenburgLeadership Orlando has been an amazing experience. Each session has exposed our class to real issues impacting and challenging the Central Florida Region. Not only are we learning about the economic, political, and social impacts regarding transportation, infrastructure, technology, public-private partnerships, tourism, entertainment, etc., we are also making lifelong friends in the process.

I encourage everyone with a desire to develop a deeper connection with the Central Florida Region and make great friends in the process, to become a part of Leadership Orlando's next class.
