The North Carolina Leadership Forum picks participants on a by-cohort, by-invitation process. We make careful considerations about who is in the room – From geography, political affiliation, occupation, race, age, creed, and more. Previous participants included members of the General Assembly, state and local officials, leaders of non–profit and philanthropic organizations, education practitioners, and business leaders from across the political spectrum and from across North Carolina. Below is a map showing the political and geographic diversity of NCLF participants. A more detailed look into our alumni can be found here, showing which party, county, and cohort the participants come from.
