June 25, 2008

Jones Walker partner Mark A. Cunningham has been selected as a member of the 2009 class of the New Orleans Regional Leadership Institute. The New Orleans Regional Leadership Institute was founded in 2000 as a program of Greater New Orleans, Inc. to help promote regionalism. The program takes place over a nine-month period that begins and ends with a two-day retreat and includes seven monthly sessions. Participants experience a variety of regional issues presented through lectures, on-site visits, readings, discussion groups, simulations, and other leadership development activities. The 40 program participants are selected through an application process that seeks to identify those who are most likely to utilize their leadership abilities for the long-term benefit of the New Orleans region, and is designed to reflect the area's diverse occupational, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds; geographic areas; and community interests. Over 250 New Orleans-area professionals have graduated from the program since it began in 2000.

Jones Walker NORLI Alumni include William H. Hines, William M. Backstrom, Jr., Robert B. Worley, Jr., and J. Kelly Duncan.
