Leaders Council

We are proud to announce the creation of the Bridge Alliance Leaders Council (BALC);  Bridge Alliance leaders who believe that together, as one, we will build a powerful community that achieves far greater success than any one of us could possibly attain on our own.

This inaugural Leadership Council was formed based on working relationships with the Bridge Alliance team, collaborations with other members, and known leadership in the field.
