Message from the Council Chairman

Jim Abrams
Jim Abrams

It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that the Council for Ethical Leadership has joined forces with Capital University's School of Management and Leadership to form the Council for Ethical Leadership at Capital University. The Council now has a new Director, Barbara B. Barresi, Ph.D., R.N. who's bio is listed below. This synergistic relationship comes about at a great time, and I am looking forward to working with Capital to further the mission of the Council. An Advisory Board has been formed which includes myself as well as previous members of the Council and its Board of Trustees. We are extremely excited about this relationship and believe it will assist in putting the issue of ethical leadership at the forefront of the central Ohio community's mindset. I look forward to your continued support.
