ALPHARETTA, GA – October 17, 2016 — InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology and security services, today announced that InterDev GIS Manager Mike Edelson, GISP, has graduated from the Leadership DeKalb Class of 2016. Each year, a selection committee invites members of the community to participate in the 10-month leadership training program. The curriculum for the series includes full-day program sessions, community service projects, police/fire ride-a-longs, and a half-day integrity and ethics session.
“Leadership DeKalb was a rewarding experience for me, and I met a lot of great people,” said Edelson. “As part of the program, we toured many public and private facilities throughout DeKalb County. Representatives from these facilities gave us information, from their perspective, on what is happening in our communities.”
The 2016 class was the largest ever, with a diverse membership of government officials, prominent business professionals and others. Attendees other than Edelson included Georgia State Representative Tonya Anderson, City of Clarkston City Council Member Robert Hogan, DeKalb County Development Authority President Ray Gilly, Principle of the Museum School of Avondale Estates Katherine Kelbaugh, and State Court of DeKalb County Judge Michael Jacobs.
