LANO and Forum 35, a community of engaged young people dedicated to improving and shaping Baton Rouge, announce this year's participants in the John W. Barton Sr. Leadership Community Development Program.

Since 2004, Forum 35 and LANO have partnered to train young emerging leaders in nonprofit governance and then match them with local nonprofit organizations for service on their Board of Directors. The program is named in honor of John W. Barton Sr. in recognition of his support of Baton Rouge's nonprofit sector for over 75 years including his vision and commitment to developing new and emerging leaders.

Based on the applications received, the 2012 John W. Barton, Sr. Community Leadership Development Program has selected 30 participants. The selected applicants represent a diverse population of the Greater Baton Rouge community. Over 45 applications were placed with limited space available. All applicants were encouraged to apply in 2013.

Nonprofits seeking candidates for board or committee service are encouraged to browse the biographies of the 2011 leadership class on the LANO web site. The biographies include important information on the leaders' interests and the skills and qualities that they have to offer a nonprofit organization. Contact information for the leaders is included in the biographies.

If you are interested in Forum 35 or need for information on the leadership program, visit or contact Melissa Parmelee at for more information. For information on LANO visit or contact Kellie Chavez Greene at
