Philadelphia |2011

For the last decade, NLCPHL has been a chapter proudly connecting and developing Progressive leaders in sectors ranging from government to business to education. The young leaders represent the changing demographics of an old, rusted city desperately looking for a new direction to lead them in the 21st Century. With multiple alumni who have now established themselves in leadership positions across the range of civic services, NLC has proven that progress is a process to be trusted.
