SARASOTA, Fla. -- Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight has been selected to attend Leadership Florida, a statewide community of leaders actively engaged in understanding this state.

The mission of Leadership Florida is to enhance and recharge the leadership skills of its carefully chosen members and to educate and inspire them to work across their strengths and diversities for a better Florida.

The first session of Class XXXIII (33) will be in Howey-in-the-Hills September 10-12, 2014, learning about Florida's history, demographics, economy, politics and diversity. The following sessions will take place in Sarasota, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Miami before wrapping up in St. Petersburg at the Leadership Florida Annual Meeting.

Leadership Florida is the only organization that takes a statewide view of the conditions and challenges that face the state and offers a leadership continuum that expands the impact of community leaders across the state. Leadership Florida was created in 1982 by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and is now more than 800 members strong.
