LDI 25th Anniversary

LDI 25th Logo Design Banner 1

Over the course of 2022, New Memphis will host workshops and social engagements for LDI graduates to offer alumni a chance to refresh and polish skills with other executives while building their network of peer leaders. The anniversary is a unique opportunity for New Memphis to reflect on our past two and half decades of impact, connect new leaders, and look forward to what is next for our city.

The 2022 calendar includes:

  • Leadership Development Three half-day professional development workshops hosted across the year, exclusively for LDI graduates. Each workshop will be led by the original LDI facilitator, Linda Bailey, and will focus on skills-sharing tailored for high level executives. Each workshop will begin with a group lunch and conclude with a happy hour. Are you an LDI alum who would like to join us for an LDI workshop? Email Jill (jill [at] newmemphis [dot] org)here. Seats are limited, so we encourage you to RSVP early.
  • Build Connections All LDI alumni – more than 1,000 seasoned leaders – will be invited to join us for a reunion in October, to close out the 25th year. This is an occasion for graduates across the program’s history to gather to reignite old friendships and make new connections, while celebrating the milestone anniversary. Check your emails for LDI Reunion RSVP link.
  • Celebration of History New Memphis will profile LDI alumni over the course of the year, sharing the stories of their community leadership and impact. Messages will be shared across the entire New Memphis network and will call on program alumni to serve our city through mentoring and nonprofit board service.

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.
