The Power of Service
The Yellowhammer Power & Influence 50 is an annual list of the most powerful and influential players in Alabama politics and business, from elected officials and governmental affairs pros to CEO’s and economic development heavyweights.
Each year, Yellowhammer’s team gathers feedback from a myriad of Alabama political insiders to help assemble the list. The Power & Influence 50 comes down to who in Alabama can turn their ideas into reality — the men and women who shape the state.
The Power of Service event will honor the men and women on the list who have leveraged their stature to make a positive impact on the state.
