Sen. Chris Elliott (R – Daphne) was recently selected as a member of the 2020 Emerging Legislative Leaders Program, a national group sponsored by the State Legislative Leaders Foundation (SLLF) and the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
“I am humbled and honored to have been nominated by Senate Leadership and selected by SLLF to represent Alabama in this prestigious program,” Elliott said.
The Emerging Legislative Leaders Program is a program for upcoming leaders in state legislatures from across the country. Up to 50 of the best and brightest state legislators come together to take part in a multi-day series of discussions and sessions led by professors at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
Over 600 legislators have taken part in the program since its start in 2005, with many past members achieving leadership positions within their respective states.
“This leadership program provides an opportunity for collaboration with colleagues from across the country to share ideas and best practices to address complex public policy issues,” Elliott said.
The SLLF is a non-partisan, non-profit independent organization established in 1972 that represents all legislative leadership across the country and seeks to educate and inspire the nation’s current and future state legislative leaders to excellence.
