Leadership Triangle Celebrates 22 years of Regional Leadership
Leadership Triangle Alumni Network (LTAN) will extend and enhance the value of Goodmon Fellows’ investment in their Leadership Triangle experience. Through ongoing networking opportunities, Goodmon Fellows maintain the connections with their classmates and create new connections with other Leadership Triangle program graduates. Timely, relevant and carefully selected events and activities will continue Goodmon Fellows’ leadership development while also expanding their regional knowledge and perspective.
While all Goodmon Fellows may have access to LTAN events for a fee (usually $20 per event), membership will have its privileges. Paid members ($100 per year) will be able to attend all events free, except the Goodmon Awards, which will be discounted. A full calendar of high quality events and activities are decribed below.

Leadership Triangle On the Street– Goodmon Fellows value community and volunteerism. Therefore, group volunteer projects like working on a Habitat home will be arranged to provide more opportunities to give back and to spend quality time with other Fellows. Thursday August 22, we enjoyed the Durham Premiere of Bringing It Home, with our Goodmon Fellow and filmaker Linda Booker. We gathered at the Full Frame Theater at the American Tobacco Power Plant. The screening was enjoyed by all. We are partnering with Activate Good and will have another activity in 2014.
