The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce has supported and offered the Leadership Liberty program for the past six years and will graduate its seventh class in June. The nine-month class offers its participants insight into county/city government, public education and health, as well as a visit to the Capitol to meet with local legislators.
Rep. Al Williams served as the class’s guide this week in Atlanta. They toured the House Chamber, met with Deputy Commissioner Gretchen Corbin with the Department of Economic Development, Director Allen Barnes with the Environmental Protection Division and others.
The class also met with representatives from Georgia Power Company and Georgia EMC at the Cynergy Building earlier in the day.
“As a participant in the very first class that graduated from Leadership Liberty, I can tell you it was a very worthwhile experience,” Leah Poole, the executive director of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, said. “Having been born and raised in Liberty County, I assumed that I knew everything there was to know. I was definitely proven wrong.”
Applications for the next class will be available in August. To add your name to the waiting list, call the Chamber at 368-4445.
