The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce is planning a special program beginning
in September 1969. The purpose of Leadership Atlanta is to develop a
group of identifiable young leaders; acquaint them with the basic problems
and suggested solutions of the problems facing Atlanta; and encourage
participation in positive community leadership.
There will be approximately 50 participants in this program; 30 sponsored
b y business firms, and 20 chosen from outside the business community
to insure participation from low income Negro groups. A real effort is
being made to insure representative membership among the participants.
The sessions will be held once a month. Each one is developed by the
Chamber and a different educational institution. Background reading
material will be required before each session. The format will be generally
as follows :
1) Address on topic
2) Supper
3) Panel or seminar involving local figures
A listing of the subjects to be covered is included.
The first session is scheduled for September 2 9, 19.69. The Chamber
would like for y ou to keynote the program with an opening address .
Frank Carter, Chamber President, and I have been asked to participate
in the after-dinner session and are planning to do so.

worthwhile undertaking. If you would like, I will be happy to
arrange other engagements for you during the day.
