The Citizen Leadership Institute

Since it’s inception, The Choice has built business around developing and maintaining relationships. Starting in 2010, our President Drew Hudson launched a formal initiative to ingrain that process. The Citizen Leadership Institute (CLI) was born out of a desire to ensure that The Choice not only engage in the career of its associates, but also provided the resources to younger candidates in particular to aid as they launch their careers in D.C.
