You have within you the opportunity to create meaningful change. Envision Alpharetta is here to provide you every opportunity to realize that potential. This 12 week program will unite Influencers by creating a shared experience that will be the springboard to working with others in the Alpharetta community to make a difference around a shared topic.
Throughout the program, Influencers will:
- Get to know themselves, each other, and the city of Alpharetta in a new way.
- Ask hard questions, test new ideas, weigh in on difficult or controversial issues facing our city and its people.
- Inquire and explore ideas and develop them to have a transformative influence on an issue in the city.
