The Moultrie-Colquitt County Leadership Program is offered every other year. This program identifies potential community leaders, and provides them opportunities to study various community and governmental agencies. Participants will gain leadership and problem solving skills and will explore local community issues through hands-on learning and through a mentor/student relationship.
Leadership Colquitt County is a unique opportunity for participants to go “behind the scenes” and learn how our community works. Topics include County/City Government, Judicial System, Education, Social Services, Economic Development, Chamber of Commerce, Agriculture, Tourism, Medical Services, Arts, Local History, and Local Industry. Activities also include leadership skills training and a trip to the State Capital to meet our elected officials.
Local businesses, industries and agencies are encouraged to nominate individuals that have demonstrated potential leadership skills. Participants are accepted into the program through a selection committee composed of Chamber Board members, Chamber Workforce Development Committee members, and Leadership Colquitt County alumni. Applicants are required to submit a detailed application and provide letters of recommendation.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of the various businesses and agencies of our area and to help develop the future leaders of our community. If you would like more information on upcoming Leadership classes, please call the Chamber at 985-2131.
