Coastal Civic Masters Program

Coastal Civic Masters


The program is designed to build a regional leadership coalition to promote the needs of Coastal Alabama, including Mobile and Baldwin counties, to provide leadership development for area leaders and to build community awareness for leaders of Coastal Alabama issues.


We are looking for Coastal Alabama business and community leaders who have participated in corporate or community leadership programs and who are interested in furthering their civic engagement, including supporting candidates for public office or with interest in running for public office at some point in the future.

The ideal candidate will be an up and coming leader in business and community leadership, who is interested in a possible future civic and/or elected leadership role. The goal will be for each class to have no more than 25 participants with half of the class being from Mobile and half from Baldwin counties.
