CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Two local leaders are going to be honored at an upcoming event.

The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce Leadership Charlottesville Alumni Association is hosting its 2019 Alumni Membership Breakfast on Jan. 31.

At the meeting, the LCAA Board of Directors will present their Leaders' Leader Award to Paul Beyer, the founder of the Tom Tom Founders Festival, and the first Community Leadership Award to Lorenzo Dickerson, the founder of Leadership Albemarle.

Antonio Rice, a longtime facilitator with Leadership Charlottesville and the Director of Development at the Salvation Army, will be the keynote speaker.

“We are excited about bringing back the alumni membership meeting,” said Bill Brent, the co-chair of the board. “We're especially excited about recognizing Paul and Lorenzo for the tremendous work they're doing in our community. They both represent the hundreds of civically-engaged leaders who are part of LCAA and who make our communities better for learning, working, playing and volunteering.”

The Leaders' Leader Award goes to a Leadership Charlottesville graduate whose body of work models the mission and spirit of the program through demonstrated initiative, vision and responsibility, and who invest their time and efforts to contribute to their community.

The Community Leadership Award honors a Leadership Charlottesville graduate who fulfills the program's mission through contemporary actions, guidance and creativity shown toward bettering the community.

This person's development of an innovative new project also has provided unique value to others in the greater Charlottesville Community.
