Leadership Circle

The WGR Leadership Circle is designed specifically for former WGR Board Members to support and enhance WGRs future by sharing their leadership experiences, historical perspectives, and professional expertise. This pay-it-forward approach benefits current and future WGR leaders and other government relations practitioners with a minimal time commitment and financial investment in WGR.
