Celebrating 30 Years!

Throughout our 30th anniversary year, we will highlight special stories of the impact Scottsdale Leadership has had on our alumni.

After her Core Program experience, Carol Damaso, Class 21, knew she wanted to get involved in a volunteer community leadership role.  She decided she wanted to learn to fundraise and got that opportunity as a Scottsdale Leadership Corporate Outreach committee member followed by seven years as a board member. Read the full story, "Combining knowledge with leadership is the strength of the Scottsdale Leadership Core Program."

When Ernie Flores began Class 29, he admittedly felt like he didn't belong in a group of such accomplished individuals. Fast forward to the end of the 9-month program and he is forever grateful for the countless friendships he made.  Read the full story, "True Friends Are Gained Through Scottsdale Leadership."

New Online Alumni Directory Coming in 2016!

In the next few weeks, friendly Scottsdale Leadership alum will be calling you to make sure we have your current contact information so we can include you in our new online Scottsdale Leadership Alumni Directory. The goal is to have a directory of over 1000+ alumni available later this year for all alumni who make an annual donation of $100 or more to Scottsdale Leadership.
When the phone rings and you don't recognize that number, don't assume it's a sales call...it could be a Scottsdale Leadership alum trying to reach you.
