Leadership Southeast Georgia, a regional leadership development program, held its third of five sessions to focus on the impact of the region’s military installations on economic development and how those military resources interconnect with the leadership program’s topics.

The session, held in Camden County, also addressed the region’s disaster preparedness and resources in the wake of recent hurricanes.

“This session was highly beneficial for the entire 2018 class,” said Lee Beckmann, the leadership program’s chairman. “Our region has a very strong military presence, so to expand on the economic implications and resources of the bases was an important piece of our program."

On the first day of the session, the class was given a tour of the Kings Bay naval base and a presentation on the economic impact of the base and other military elements in the area, followed by a trip to the waterfront to view the U.S.S. Trident, a submarine anchored there.

Later in the city of St. Mary’s, Camden County Emergency Services Director Chuck White discussed disaster preparedness and response. That was followed by a panel with U.S. Coast Guard personnel on hurricane response.

The group began its second day at the St. Mary’s Convention and Visitors Bureau with talks on Spaceport Camden and the St. Mary’s Marine Center. The class then addressed the issue of leadership with a review of performance management strategies, led by facilitator Suzanne Kirk, HR consultant with Employee Development Strategies Inc.

Since January 1999, representatives of business, government, education and nonprofit organizations across Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties have taken part in creating a leadership network for regional community and economic development.

The annual five-month program is designed to grow and inspire engaged community leaders to improve the overall quality of life in the area. This year, the class is sponsored by Evans General Contractors, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., Georgia Southern University and The Sack Co. (SACK).

The next session will be held in Bulloch and Screven counties in April.
