LGAA's Legacy in the Community

There are a surprising number of community organizations, events and fundraisers that are a direct result of the Leadership Gainesville program and LGAA. The LGAA Community Relations Committee is in the process of compiling the list. If you know of an event or project that is not listed on this page, please email info@lgalum.com

LG & LGAA Dates:

  • 1974: First Leadership Gainesville class.  According to Dr. Larry Peppers, we have the 4th oldest "leadership" program in the country.
  • 1983: SIMSOC added to the curriculum (nope, we're not telling you what SIMSOC is.)
  • 1986: Medical shadowing added to curriculum
  • 1987: Teacher shadowing added to curriculum
  • 1987: Leadership Gainesville Alumni Association formed
  • 2010: LGAA launched a fully integrated website, www.lgalum.com, where members can sign up for events, manage their directory profile, renew their membership, post on our events blog, and read more about our organization and its history. 
  • 2015: Introduction of new Leadership Development Curriculum to Leadership Gainesville.
