New Leadership Hall Class

The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Leadership Hall County (LHC) program was founded in 1983 and exposes highly talented, motivated and potential leaders of Hall County to the inter-related economic, government, socio-cultural and educational issues of the community. 

Participants develop knowledge of the community through a series of one-day sessions on topics such as arts, education, health and social services, city and state governments, judicial, and economic development. 

The new class will be recognized at the Greater Hall Chamber’s 106th Annual Meeting & Gala on May 15 at the Chattahoochee Country Club. 

Class members are nominated by former participants and selected by the Leadership Hall County Selection Committee.  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.
