Leadership program seeking applicants

POSTED: March 22, 2013 9:49 a.m.

The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for its upcoming Leadership Dawson program.

Established in 1992 as a joint program between the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce and the local University of Georgia Extension office, more than 150 local residents have graduated from Leadership Dawson.

"Chambers across Georgia are active in providing and promoting community leadership programs because it helps strengthen knowledge and community connections and provides a foundation to grow future leaders," said Dawson County Chamber of Commerce President Christie Haynes.

Participants not only learn leadership skills, but become familiar with the needs and opportunities for service in Dawson County. Some of the topics covered are local demographics, economic development, communication and education.

"We encourage anyone who is currently active or looking to get active in Dawson County to apply for Leadership Dawson. The program allows you to meet a variety of people and evaluate and enhance your personal leadership skills," she said.

The nearly yearlong program, which begins in late fall and culminates with a graduation ceremony in May 2014, meets monthly, on the second Wednesday, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

The program includes an overnight retreat, classwork, seminars, a visit to the state capitol and requires 100 percent commitment to all activities, events and assignments.

The cost is $450 with applications and a $50 deposit due by May 1. Full payment is due by July 1.

To learn more about Leadership Dawson or to apply for the next class, call the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce at (706) 265-6278.
