Public Leadership Institute Application Period Open

BCC PLI logoIf you are interested in running for office, leadership, candidacy or public policy issues, the Public Leadership Institute may be for you!

The Business Community Coalition (BCC)—a partnership between the Gainesville Area Chamber, the Gainesville-Alachua County Association of Realtors and the Builders Association of North Central Florida—has opened the application period for the 2015 Public Leadership Institute (PLI).

PLI is a non-partisan program for professionals in the Alachua County/Gainesville area who want to learn about public-policy issues while exploring the possibility of engaging in public leadership at some point in their future.

This competitive program will provide participants an opportunity to learn about leadership, candidacy, and public policy issues — from “getting on the ballot to sitting in the seat”—in a small setting.  No commitment is required to run for office.

32% of BCC PLI alumni are present or past public leaders.

PLI-3 applications are due by July 2nd and can be accessed by clicking here.

For more information, contact or at 352-378-2498.
