About Us

The Mission of Greater Tucson Leadership is to inspire, develop, and promote leadership that impacts the Greater Tucson Region.

Our History

Founded in 1980, Greater Tucson Leadership (GTL) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, non-partisan leadership organization dedicated to providing leadership education, community development and civic engagement for the overall care of and commitment of our Tucson community for 40 years. GTL hosts an annual leadership class in which class participants expand their knowledge of our region and become strong community leaders. We provide a platform to create understanding of community and critical issues, encourage discussion and problem-solving, cultivate appreciation for differing perspectives and inspire leadership at all levels of community. We also offer professional development activities and leadership opportunities for our alumni. The strong GTL Alumni network has been the cornerstone of GTL success in meeting its mission throughout the years. 

Meet Our Team

GTL is led by a governing board comprised of community leaders who have a vested interest in building strong leaders in our region. Some members are graduates of the GTL class and others are community partners who support our mission. Our Governing Board guides the strategic direction and attends to the sustainability of our organization to keep us relevant and healthy.
