Greatness in Our Midst


Rick Sanders was born and raised right here is Gainesville Florida. As a Gainesville original it was laid on his heart from the beginning to give back to the community that has meant so much to him through out the years. So Leadership Gainesville was of course a natural fit.


 As one of the oldest leadership programs in the nation and the state of Florida, its impact on the community has been evident for the past 41 years. Leadership Gainesville this year brings together 48 of the brightest and most driven individuals in the area to make a community focused group striving to better the people and places around them. Leadership Gainesville is a year-long leadership program designed to showcase the vast amenities of the area and inspire leadership skills in the individuals caring for our community everyday. The LG as it is called utilizes networking with individuals in the community that represent business, civic groups, law, religion, the arts, non-for profit, healthcare, human services, government and volunteer organizations to bring together all facets of our community for the betterment of all of our residents. Becoming a part of LG is no easy task, the candidates go through a competitive application process and are then individually selected to become a part of this prestigious organization. Kicking off this August, this years selected members will begin their 365 day long mission of giving back to Gainesville and Alachua County.


We are extremely proud to announce that our very own Rick Sanders has been selected as one of the individuals that will be serving with the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce in the Leadership Gainesville program! We will be keeping up with Rick and the rest of the LG to be sure you are in the know about what they are up to. Congratulations to the 41st class of Leadership Gainesville! We cant wait to see all of the impact these dedicated individuals will be making!
