Chamber leadership class gears up for new challenges
Liberty County Chamber of Commerce

The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce kicked off its 2018-2019 Leadership Liberty class Sept. 28 and 29 at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites in Flemington.  

Class participants met and partook in activities that fostered teamwork and leadership. Chamber CEO Leah Poole led a session on the facets of leadership and the importance of trust and communication. 

The following day, Leadership Liberty class participants experienced a day full of physical and mental challenges. Completing the COPE Course at the Fort Stewart Youth Challenge Academy was the task for that day. Class participants had the opportunity to zipline and repel, and learn more about how the Academy positively impacts the community. 

“It’s always fun starting the Leadership Liberty class, you never really know what group mix you are walking into and it looks like to me that this year’s class is sure to be fun and come away with a lot of information on how they can build a better Liberty County,” she said.

Leadership Liberty is an intense 9-month class, in which class participants meet at least once per month and learn about various functions of the community. These include county government, city government, public health, public education, tourism and economic development. Various local civic, business and government entities host the class each month. This leadership course is part of a statewide collaborative, sponsored by the Georgia Rural Development Council in partnership with The Fanning Institute for Leadership at the University of Georgia.
