The Liberty County Development Authority recently kicked off its existing-industry roundtable program with a luncheon presentation at Holton’s Seafood in Midway.
“We are continually looking for ways to assist our existing industries, and we developed the existing-industry roundtable program after looking at successful programs in other communities in Georgia,” LCDA CEO Ronald E. Tolley said. “The program will allow us to bring together plant managers from our existing industries twice a year to listen to presentations on relevant topics and provide an opportunity for the attendees to have an open dialogue with the presenter and one another. Depending on the topic, we may also invite others at the companies, like human resources or safety managers, to be included in the programs.”
For the inaugural program, the LCDA invited Liberty College and Career Academy CEO Tom Alexander to deliver a presentation on the LCCA, which is scheduled to open in August.
“The LCCA can provide a valuable workforce development solution for Liberty County’s existing industries,” Alexander said. “... We can customize pathways to teach necessary skills needed by our existing industries in Liberty County.”
