Make your reservations now for the NAACP Leadership 500 Summit

The Leadership 500 gathering prepares to set a new agenda & create a continuing network of the nation's emerging leaders

"Leadership By Design: Ensuring Our Legacy" is the theme of the 4th Annual NAACP Leadership 500 Summit, being held at the Phoenician Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona May 22-25. Participants will attend two and a half days of workshops, interactive panel discussions and facilitated general sessions led by prominent private sector, non-profit, corporate and community leaders.

Leadership 500 workshop topics will explore issues of economic parity and wealth creation; civil rights; health and wellness as a business imperative; early childhood education; and the status of African American women in today's society. The complex issues of race, class, gender and religion in America will be examined in a Town Hall Meeting. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Robert M. Franklin, President of Morehouse College; Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO of BCT Partners and winner of NBC's "The Apprentice" with Donald Trump; the Hon. Judge Greg Mathis of the Judge Mathis Show; and John Hope Bryant, Chairman and CEO of OperationHOPE.

Since its inception in 2005, Leadership 500 has served as a fertile training ground around social justice advocacy for more than 1,200 mid-level professionals between the ages of 30 and 50. The summit is one of several rallying events for the organization as it prepares to celebrate its Centennial Anniversary Feb. 12, 2009.

"Effective leadership is a destination achieved through careful thought, consideration and strategic action. We invite leaders from across the country to join us for this exciting conference." - NAACP National Board of Directors Vice Chairwoman Roslyn M. Brock, conceiver of the summit.
