Goodmon Takes the Helm of Leadership Triangle Board for Second Time
Paul Pope Thanked for Service to Organization
CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon takes his post as Chair of the Leadership Triangle Board.
Leadership Triangle held an alumni gathering on Tuesday, August 16, 2005, to welcome CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon as its new board chairman. The event also served as a time to update alumni on the organization’s newest program and recruit for the fall “Will You Lead?” session.
“I believe in Leadership Triangle and what they’re doing more than I ever have,” Goodmon said from the podium. He reiterated what he sees as the three integral facets of the LT program:
- it focuses on leadership,
- it focuses on regionalism,
- participants show they care about the community by being a part of LT.
He said that incremental change in the community is the key to making real change. And that the networking among Leadership Triangle alumni is key as well. “The future is made of partnerships,” he said.
