Leadership Aspire is the educational arm of Leadership Palm Beach County. Through workshops focusing on various topics, Aspire gives participants an opportunity to learn from experts about timely issues. The program is provided as a service to the community and is based on the mission of LPBC to educate and unite leaders to build a better community. None of our Aspire sessions are limited to LPBC Alumni - all are available for registration to community members.
The Aspire Program features educational sessions in a variety of formats. These formats include:
- Lunch & Learns, 90-minute programs that include lunch, networking, and an informative discussion on a timely topic, which we will hold four of each year;
- Legislative Updates, which will occur after Florida's Legislative Session ends once a year;
- And additional educational workshops, such as Cost Of Poverty Experience (COPE), Beyond Politics, and more.
With so many topics covered through Leadership Aspire's various programs, we believe there is something for everyone to enjoy. We hope you will join us for one or all of our workshops! Please see below for further information about our Aspire sessions.
Lunch & Learns, presented by UBS Lansing Hutcheon, are 90-minute programs that include lunch, an opportunity for networking, and a discussion on timely topics by speakers who are experts in the session topic.
The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) is a free simulation that offers participants a glimpse into the lives of low-income individuals and families living in our community -- the obstacles that are faced, the decisions that are made, and the consequences that impact these families every day.
Leadership Palm Beach County will hold its annual Legislative Update on Thursday, May 18, 2023. This update is your chance to hear from your Palm Beach County Legislative Delegation on their successes and challenges during the Legislative session.
Every other year on non-election years, we put together a panel of Leadership Palm Beach County Alumni who are currently serving as elected officials. At our Beyond Politics Breakfasts, attendees gain insight into the panelists' lessons in Leadership before and while holding office, what Leadership ideas they brought into their office, what they have learned while serving, and what their experience in LPBC brought to their ability to serve.
