West Palm Beach, Florida (August 16, 2021) – Major James Hall, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County has been accepted into the 2021-22 Leadership Engage Program, Leadership Palm Beach County’s flagship program. Leadership Engage, presented by iTHINK Financial, is a highly selective 10-month program which unites community leaders and offers participants a transformative learning experience and a powerful network, with the intent to better Palm Beach County.

Participants from diverse industries and backgrounds gain a deeper understanding of their own leadership styles and learn how they can make significant contributions in the community. With many industries still adapting to the changes ushered in by COVID-19, the Engage Class of 2022 is joining the Leadership Palm Beach County family at a time when community involvement is more appreciated than ever.

“In reviewing the list of the other LPBC members,” said Major Hall, “I am tremendously excited and humbled to be a part of the 2021 Class.  I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and especially focus on making a better community through collaborative efforts.  It’s going to be a great ride … and I’m all in!”

The 48 class members were selected for their leadership and service in their professional and civic lives. They will meet each month from September through May to explore program topics such as agriculture, education, public safety, and healthcare. Class members will also divide into smaller groups and work on their chosen “Engage Forward” projects, the Leadership Palm Beach County civic engagement initiative benefiting local non-profits and aimed at tackling challenges facing the region.

The mission of LPBC is to educate and unite leaders to build a better community, and the 48 new class members look forward to furthering this mission. For a full list of members of the Leadership Engage Class of 2022, Click Here.
