Leadership DeKalb established the Emerging Leaders of DeKalb Program (ELD) in order to explore a new pipeline of talented leaders and develop the next generation of leaders in DeKalb County. The ELD program is composed of leaders between 25 – 34 years of age and educates them about DeKalb County, exposes them to issues facing DeKalb County, and develops their leadership skills through Program Days and the Thought Leadership Accelerator.
The Thought Leadership Accelerator (TLA) is the leadership development element of the ELD Program. The purpose of the TLA is to strengthen the thought leadership skills of young leaders by selecting key issues in DeKalb County and dividing the class into teams to focus on these issues.
