From the E.D.

Recruitment for Leadership New York (LNY) has begun!  For 21 years, Coro's civic leadership program for mid-career professionals has given participants the skills and knowledge to lead change in their organizations and across the City.  Today, LNY alumni are this City's Commissioners, Executive Directors, CEOs, community activists, journalist, and business and social entrepreneurs. 

Friends and alumni have been one of our most important sources of referrals for this program and this year, we are introducing several new tools to improve recruitment efforts:

The challenges our City faces today are complex, but they require exactly the kind of collaborative and effective leadership that defines LNY alumni.   As a Coro supporter, you have an important role to play to help us identify the next generation of civic leaders.  Nominating candidates for LNY is a great way to contribute.
