TYLER — Tyler will once again be a host site for the worldwide Leadercast 2014 conference taking place on Friday, May 9. The Tyler venue will be the Green Acres Crosswalk Conference Center. The one day event is broadcast live from Atlanta, Georgia. This year’s theme, “Beyond You,” challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward, according to press materials. “Leadercast is a top-quality learning opportunity and will benefit all who want to improve themselves and have a positive impact on others,” said Carroll Roge, president of Leadership Tyler.
