FRANKLIN, TN – Leadership Franklin has selected 20 members to participate in next year’s nine-month program, the organization’s 19th year.
Founded in 1996 to develop leaders in Franklin and Williamson County, Leadership Franklin endeavors to provide class members with knowledge, network connections, and resources to bring new ideas to the table for the community.
Each class day is focused on presenting and analyzing a particularly important segment of the city including area history, government, business, law enforcement, media, education, and quality of life.
