Leadership Shelby County encourages nominations of individuals who have demonstrated leadership ability in their chosen field, who have exhibited interest and commitment to the future of Shelby County, and who have the potential for exercising substantial leadership in the future. Because class size is limited and the selection process competitive, it is not unusual for a candidate to be nominated more than one year before being selected.

Multiple nominations are encouraged. You may wish to discuss the Leadership Shelby County Program with a nominee, but in any case, responsibility for follow-up will fall to the Leadership Shelby County Board.

While Leadership Shelby County welcomes participation by elected officials, we discourage nomination of a person actively involved in a political campaign.
