Ideas to notes from the Atlanta Rising Discussion:
  • Corralling key community leaders is essential for moving communities forward.
  • Atlanta decided what it wanted to become and worked to become that vision.
  • A community needs a vision and a visionary to grow and develop.
  • A community needs to keep good talent and leaders in its community.
  • College graduates are a great source of talent.
