ATLANTA — The Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership recently welcomed 34 members from agriculture, forestry, business, education, environmental organizations, government and civic groups to its class of 2010. Hinesville City Manager Billy Edwards is a member of the class. IGEL is a leadership program that began in 2001 and is designed to develop a network of state environmental leaders who work together to address Georgia’s environmental challenges.    
The 2010 class members will join the ranks of 244 environmental leaders from across the state who have completed the program.  
The IGEL program is a partnership between IGEL, Inc., and the Fanning Institute at the University of Georgia. IGEL is an independent 501(c) (3) organization that raises funds to pay for the program, selects the participants and works with Fanning facilitators to develop content. Fanning Institute plans and facilitates the IGEL sessions with some services provided through in-kind contributions.
IGEL participants will attend four sessions in
different locations throughout the state beginning in May and concluding in November.
