The region’s top strategic minds unite at the Visionary level. As the name suggests, Visionaries are investors who, through experience, can help provide direction for the Alliance and Charlotte region as a whole. You are some of Charlotte’s most passionate businesses, and you’re determined to see our community grow and prosper.

Your investment fuels our mission through executive representation on our governing body, The Board of Trustees. Those who invest at this level are highly visible in all aspects of our organization. The servant leadership of your executive team propels the success of our mission and thus our region.
