Our Deputy Director Meagan Kula was one of the 2020 graduates of the Business Leadership Academy, sponsored by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and Pacific Lutheran University. The academy is an opportunity for current and emerging leaders to engage with the business community while developing leadership skills, linking with a mentor, working on a group community project, and interacting with exemplary leaders. Hundreds of local community leaders have been part of the academy since its beginning in 1978.
This video highlights some of the regular meetings, tours of the community (including a walk led by Downtown On the Go!) and local businesses , and interviews with local leaders held earlier in the year (pre-COVID).
