MOULTRIE, Ga. — The Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce’s Workforce Development Committee is now accepting adult applications for the 2019-2020 Leadership Colquitt County Program.
This nine-month long program identifies potential community leaders and provides them opportunities to study various community and governmental agencies. Participants will gain leadership and problem solving skills and will explore local community issues through hands-on learning.
Leadership Colquitt County is a unique opportunity for participants to go “behind the scenes” and learn how our community works. Topics include county/city government, judicial system, education, social services, economic development, chamber of commerce, agriculture, tourism, medical services, arts, local history, local industry and more. Employer support is encouraged due to the time commitment required for class attendance.
Leadership Colquitt County sessions will begin Aug. 27 with a kick-off at the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council. The participants will meet at least one time per month throughout the program ending in April 2020.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of the various businesses and agencies of our area and to help develop the future leaders of our community. Adults who are interested in participating in Leadership Colquitt County can pick up an application at the Chamber of Commerce or contact Jennifer Jarvis, Program Services Director, at 229-985-2131. Deadline for adult applications will be Wednesday, July 31.
