San Diego's New Visionary Leaders:
A Fresh Look for Our Region
Join us as we find out how community-based organizations are getting things done
from the ground up!
Too often, native San Diegans (or transplants who have lived here long enough) complain often about potholes and local politics. We downplay the significance of our accomplishments and bemoan the lack of leadership and vision in our region, pointing to San Francisco, Vancouver, or even Los Angeles as models to emulate. It usually takes an outsider to land on our warm beaches and tell us we’re crazy! What a gorgeous place to live, they say! What a diverse and culturally rich part of the world! How unique are your canyons, hills and mesas. What a tremendous opportunity to be America’s Finest Region!
A fresh pair of eyes is often what we need; a new perspective, an alternative viewpoint, a jolt of energy and optimism! In the past couple of months, this is just what we have. Several new leaders have taken key positions in prominent community institutions. All come from cities outside San Diego County. All have ambitious plans for their organizations and our region. Join us in welcoming them to the center-stage. Let us ask them about their first impressions and where they see the future of San Diego heading.
Join us and ask them to inspire us and take us with them on their journey. Let us reignite our passion to make San Diego America’s finest place to live every year, every day.
