LEAD Brevard is excited to announce that a Leadership Brevard Class of 2017 Mobile App, sponsored by Health First is available to this year's class participants.  Thank you, Health First for making this pilot mobile app a reality!  The Leadership Brevard Class of 2017 met for the opening of session of Leadership Brevard "Your Journey Into Leadership" on Thursday, September 15th at the Crowne Plaza in Indialantic.  Session presenters included Mario Busacca (Class of '97), KeyStone Strategies; Josh Field (Class of '07), LEAD Brevard Chairman of the Board; Debbie Goode (Class of '98), Carr Riggs & Ingram, LLC; Jacob Stuart, Central Florida Partnership; and Stockton Whitten, Brevard County Manager.  An alumni panel moderated by Josh Field shared their leadership insight with the Leadership Brevard Class of 2017.  Panel members included  Mike Durante (Class of '07), Berman Hopkins Wright & LaHam CPAs and Associates, LLP; Marilyn J.

Showcasing 28 years of leadership!  Leadership Brevard Alumni ranging in graduation years from 1986 to 2014 shared their leadership tips; outlined opportunities to be involved in community initiatives and how that involvement shaped their experiences and left the class of 2017 with the knowledge that leadership takes many forms, involvement is essential.  (Pictured from left to right)  Josh Field '07; Marilyn J.
