2019 Annual Luncheon

January 10, 2019 | Woodford Reserve Room

Registration for the 2019 Luncheon is closed. We will see you in 2020!

Since 1984, Leadership Kentucky has been working to connect leaders and inspire them to become a collective force to address issues and strengthen Kentucky. As a national leader in statewide leadership programs, Leadership Kentucky will celebrate its 35th Anniversary in 2019!

On January 10th, 2019, Leadership Kentucky will host its Annual Luncheon and Flame of Excellence award in the Woodford Reserve room at Kroger Field in Lexington, Ky. The Flame of Excellence Award is presented each year to someone of major influence in our Commonwealth. This year, Leadership Kentucky is proud to present the award to Dave Adkisson, President of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. With Dave, we are honoring an alum who not only is influential and transformative throughout our state but with our own Leadership Kentucky program.  Dave was part of the group which helped to launch the LKY initiative 35 years ago. Additionally, we will honor the classes and founders of Leadership Kentucky and enjoy a tour of Kroger Field and Training Facility. This event will be the beginning of many anniversary commemorations throughout 2019.

Lastly, in honor of the 35th Anniversary, Leadership Kentucky will be launching new outreach programs and initiatives. In response to the valuable feedback from the recent alumni survey, establishing Regional Councils is a top priority for the immediate future. This initiative will provide opportunities for alumni to gather, learn, and network beyond the LKY experience—in your own region.

Leadership Kentucky is proud to be making a difference throughout the Commonwealth. Please join us in celebrating them and our strong legacy of impact at the January kickoff event and throughout 2019!
