NORLI Announces Class of 2022

NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Regional Leadership Institute has selected more than 50 business and civic leaders to participate in its annual Regional Leadership Program. The Class of 2022 represents a cross-section of perspectives and experiences in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

NORLI provides a nine-month intensive training program for emerging and established community leaders to enhance civic understanding and encourage dialogue.

“Through NORLI, we have created a platform where executives, elected officials, nonprofit managers, and civic leaders from across Southeast Louisiana can discuss, learn, and collaborate on how to make our region and state more competitive and more equitable,” said Stephen Reuther, NORLI executive director. “The Regional Leadership Program Class of 2022 includes dynamic individuals who are determined to not only enhance their leadership and influential networks, but also want to bring positive change to the Greater New Orleans Region.”
