The Zell Miller Foundation has announced the members of the Zell Miller Leadership Institute Class of 2020. The Leadership Institute is a year-long leadership development program designed to explore the life, legacy, and core values Zell Miller believed were essential to becoming a more effective leader.

“I am very impressed with the caliber of this incoming class. Together, they represent a diverse cross section of the public and private sector in our state.” said Bryan Miller, executive chairman of the Zell Miller Foundation. “In three years, we have accepted 150 people into this program. They are all proven leaders who use their skills and talents to make a positive difference in their communities.”

The Zell Miller Leadership Institute includes five weekend summits in Athens, Macon, Columbus, Augusta, and Savannah. Participants are able to network with like-minded people, hear from leading industry experts on issues of significant relevance in Georgia, and learn how Zell Miller became one of Georgia’s most respected public servants.

Participants are chosen from a pool of applicants who generally range in age from late twenties to late forties. Launched in 2018, each class is made up of roughly fifty participants every year.
