“As a participant in the Leadership Bartlett Class of 2011, I can’t say enough good things about the experience. In Leadership Bartlett, you will see ‘below the surface’ how our government, infrastructure, and business community interact. The time and financial investment are well worth the return and the class exceeded my expectations. My only regret is that I did not join the class sooner. “
