The nomination deadline for Leadership Louisville’s Connector Project is approaching.      The project aims to identify regional leaders from all walks of life and bring them together for brainstorming sessions and other events.

Leadership Louisville President Chris Johnson says the response thus far has been impressive.

“We have over 4,000  nominees already for the project representing close to 70 zip codes in Southern Indiana and the area around Louisville,” she said.

Although the official deadline is this Saturday, Johnson says nominations will be taken through the beginning of next week.  Leaders who are ultimately selected through the process will be publicly recognized and will have the opportunity to work together on leadership and civic projects of their own design.
