Participation in the Leadership Exchange is a competitive process with a goal of representing the geographic, demographic, sector, and industry diversity in the region.
"At its heart, GPLEX is an effort to move the needle. By traveling and learning together, this group of decision-makers gets an infusion of exposure to other cities’ best ideas, and a concentrated dose of high-level networking. GPLEXers have connected on many occasions to generate real change that benefits our region. There’s nothing more powerful than a close network of movers and shakers who can solve problems on the fly with real cross-sector collaboration."
