The Leadership Team is responsible for coordinating communication and providing support to the four committees while ensuring that all activities promote the mission and vision of Emerge Broward.
The Leadership Team consists of members who serve 12-month terms in a leadership capacity to Emerge Broward. These terms are staggered so they are overlapping (i.e., no Co-Chairs of the same committee will begin and end at the same time). The staggered terms begin in February and August.
