Chamber accepting applications for Leadership class
Applications due Aug. 12, 2022
Liberty County Chamber of Commerce

HINESVILLE – The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce announces applications are now being accepted for the 2022-23 class of Leadership Liberty.

Leadership Liberty is entering its 19th year of being the established leadership program for Liberty County. Class participants take part in an intense nine-month class, meeting at least once per month and learning about various functions of the community to include: county government, city government, public health, public education, tourism, economic development and much more. There is also a session that includes overnight travel to Atlanta to watch state government in action and meet with elected leaders.

Applications are available and are due by August 12.

The cost to participate is $700 for the entire year and includes all overnight accommodations and food, as well as transportation to Atlanta.

Since its inception with the 2004-05 class, Leadership Liberty has graduated some 100 participants who either live or work in Liberty County. These participants have garnered knowledge from various sectors of the community, as well as taken part in the leadership modules provided by the Fanning Institute of Leadership at the University of Georgia.

“I strongly encourage our business and community leaders to take part in this program, so that better relationships between the business community and our local government can be built,” said Chamber CEO Leah Poole. “I believe it is very valuable learning how local government entities work and the huge challenges a growing community like Liberty County faces. Leadership Liberty can provide insight on the job our elected officials have to do and how important non-governmental organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce are to the success of our county.”

To receive an application contact Leah Poole at (912) 368-4445 or email
