It is with immense pleasure that we announce the news of our Associate, Ryan Jones, to this year’s New Leaders Council – New Jersey class. Mr. Jones was selected from approximately 140 applicants to enter the fellows class of twenty, which began this January.
From their site:
New Leaders Council’s mission is to recruit, train, and promote the next generation of progressive leaders. We believe in a progressive movement where our best and brightest leaders have access to the same resources and team-building efforts as our conservative counterparts. This includes leadership development, mentoring, and long-term career development. By building leadership teams both locally and nationally across different sectors, NLC is working to create a generation of effective progressive change-makers.
Through the course of the next sixth months, Mr. Jones will partake in ten days of intense training at NLC’s institute with a curriculum focused upon entrepreneurship, high-level personal communication skills, fundraising, executive management, and political strategy. The 501(c)(3) recruits fellows from outside of the traditional power structures and aims to equip them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces.
The New Leaders Council, New Jersey Chapter is filled with movers and shakers within New Jersey and the GluckWalrath team believes Ryan Jones will make a fabulous addition to the organization. As with our firm in general, our firm aims to provide outstanding legal services to our clients while also embracing the tools of the legal system to make our communities a better place to live.
