SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Scottsdale Leadership, Inc., a nonprofit community leadership organization serving Scottsdale and the surrounding community, is pleased to announce the newest class members for its 25th anniversary year. This year, 43 participants were selected for Class 25 and represent a varied cross-section of the community in terms of professional and cultural backgrounds.

The nine-month program begins Sept. 3 and features curriculum that includes economic development, community stewardship, education, health care and public safety. The program enhances the success of community leaders by providing a knowledge base and support network from which members can contribute to their communities through awareness, involvement and trusteeship.
