New Leadership Hall Class Announced

The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Leadership Hall County (LHC) program was founded in 1983 and offers current and potential leaders the opportunity to learn the inter-related economic, government, socio-cultural and educational issues of the community.  Participants develop knowledge of the community through a series of sessions covering arts, education, health and social services, city, county and state governments, judicial, and economic development.

Currently, there are over 900 graduates of Leadership Hall County, with the 37th class graduating on May 10.

Leadership Hall County graduates continue to be involved in many areas of volunteer and civic service in our community.  Each year local non-profit agencies present service project ideas to the class, and the class then decides the project they will undertake.
