The Leadership Coweta experience begins with an annual one-day retreat. Over the course of the program, participants examine virtually all aspects of life in our County, including education, healthcare, regional leadership, community, economic conditions, growth, daily life, infrastructure, community safety and local government. The curriculum is tied closely to the issues and priorities identified in the Chamber's annual business plan.

"Leadership Coweta was a great experience for me, and I'm delighted at the level of interest and engagement that continues for this program," said Bill Blackmon, Sales Executive with Georgia Power Company, and chairman of the Leadership Coweta program. "With every class, participants bring a wide variety of experiences and perspectives about our County, so there's always something new to learn and to consider, both from the presenters and from fellow classmates."

The Chamber will begin accepting applications for the 2010-2011 class next summer. To learn more about Leadership Coweta, contact the Chamber at 770-253-2270 or email
