firstPRO Staffing and Executive Search is proud to announce that Mark Weinstein has been named to Leadership Atlanta’s 2010 class.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this class,” says Mark Weinstein, Executive Vice President of firstPRO. “Leadership Atlanta provides a unique opportunity for business, civic and government leaders to come together, develop relationships and learn more about how we can help lead our community.”
Leadership Atlanta’s eight month program provides a platform for approximately 70 participants selected from a group of 300 highly accomplished business executives, public officials, non-profit and academic leaders. The program is designed so that they may use their talents and positions to improve the Atlanta community.
The year begins with an orientation session at Home Depot Headquarters in June, followed by a retreat in September. From October through April, participants attend monthly, day long programs designed to give them exposure and perspective in a variety of areas such as criminal justice, poverty, education, and race relations. The year closes with a spring retreat and a graduation celebration.
“This is a great opportunity to develop valuable contacts and networks within the community we serve,” Weinstein says. “It will open doors to other leadership opportunities in my career and elevate my ability to contribute in my non-profit Board work in Atlanta.”
