  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

Tina G. Battle
Supervising Attorney, Georgia Legal Services Program  

Tina Battle says that her professional passion comes from helping underrepresented people gain access to the justice system. Her philosophy comes from the constitutional concept of “equal protection under the law,” – a philosophy that drives her in her role.


Personally, Battle says she loves repurposing furniture and then sharing tips to those with a similar passion.


When she’s not honing her constitutional skills and helping people navigate through the legal system, you can find her at yard sales, flea markets and antique sales looking for her next piece of furniture.


Battle says that her love for her family is a central tenet of her life. She’s married to William Davis Battle and has a daughter that is starting graduate school in the fall.
