Clemson FLDD 2017
Theme: Community Building: The Role of Leaders
The 7th annual Future Leaders Dialogue Dinner (FLDD) was a great night of dialogue hosted at the Madren Center at Clemson University. Thirteen different departments/institutions made this event possible through their sponsorship. Dr. Petersen, our keynote speaker, amazed the approximate 100 in attendance, mostly students, by his talk about leadership. Students involvement during the table moderators session have shown that our theme for the night "Community Building: The Role of Leaders" was well understood. Thanks to our MC, Nashieli Marcano, the event was successfully mastered. We again thank our sponsors one more time for their support and everyone for showing up. As steering committee, we already are so excited for the next year.
