We seek nominations of qualified candidates for Leadership Nashville from alumni and non-alumni alike. Each person nominated will receive correspondence from Leadership Nashville in the spring, with a schedule of program dates so that the candidate may decide if this is a good year to apply. If candidates have a conflict with the Opening Retreat date, we ask that they not apply this year since attendance at the Opening Retreat is mandatory. These candidates may contact Leadership Nashville office to request an application for the following year.
Nominating a candidate does not guarantee admission into the Class. Application to Leadership Nashville is often a multi-year process since many exceptionally qualified people apply for a class of 44 leaders each year. The Selection Committee has the difficult task of choosing an appropriate cross-section of established leaders, seeking a balanced and diverse class. Re-application is easy and an excellent way to strengthen a candidate’s consideration each year.
Please submit as many nominations as you wish using the form below. Self-nominations are accepted. Leadership Nashville contacts nominees to ask them to apply. The Application Form serves as the sole source of information used by the Selection Committee; therefore, it is necessary that the application be fully completed.
