AJGA's Role with the Regional Leadership Program
Working with the Regional Leaders, the goal is to create
a team atmosphere in which information, ideas and feedback
are constantly exchanged to meet development objectives.
Regional Leaders are the eyes and ears on the grassroots
level who can provide services and tools specific to
each region. The AJGA development staff will maintain
regular communication with the leaders to keep them
up to date on news, goals and initiatives. Through this
two-way relationship leaders will be encouraged to contribute
new ideas and suggestions for improvement.
