LDI 25th Anniversary

LDI 25th Logo Design Banner 1

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Leadership Development (LDI) program, marking a watershed moment in New Memphis history. It has been 25 years since New Memphis became an organization focused on empowering and connecting leaders in our city. We are using this milestone to celebrate all that New Memphis has accomplished and to look forward to the next 25 years. In the past quarter century, we have built a community comprised of thousands of capable leaders who feel a deep sense of responsibility and optimism for this city we all love. And we are so excited to continue this work going forward.

To close out the anniversary year, LDI alumni and New Memphis friends are invited to join us for the LDI 25th Anniversary Reunion. This is an occasion for graduates across the program’s history to gather to reignite old friendships and make new connections while celebrating the significant anniversary. 

The event is on Saturday, October 22 from 3pm to sunset – we’ll be gathering at Bill Dunavant’s Foxfield Farm for an afternoon that will close with fireworks and a toast to the next 25 years. 

Join us on October 22 -- click here to RSVP by October 1.

New Memphis is grateful for your ongoing support of our mission and we hope you can be a part of this important moment alongside us. To ensure the work of New Memphis continues for another 25 years, we are asking LDI alumni to make a donation in 2022 in honor of this landmark anniversary. You can make a secure online donation here, or contact Laura Beth Davis (laurabeth [at] newmemphis [dot] org) to learn about other giving options.
