This year, MEC's Leadership Mississippi program celebrates 45 years of identifying, cultivating and supporting some of this state's top leaders.
Here are five simple, low or no-cost ways that you, as alumni, can help extend the reach of the reputation, strength and visibility of the Leadership Mississippi program for a successful 45th anniversary year:
1. Engage Alumni!
2. Follow, Like and Share!
3. Represent Your Year!
4. Join Us In Celebrating 45 Years Strong!
In light of the 45
Anniversary, we have re-launched the monthly alumni engagement newsletter, The Leadership Letter, to keep you in-the-know. Also for the 45
Anniversary, we have created a host of exclusive, alumni-only engagement events to help you fulfill all five of these ways to stay active and involved.
If you are interested in serving as a Leadership Mississippi program volunteer or as a member of an alumni engagement advisory committee, email Cathy at email@example.com.
5. GIVE- Great and Small!
