New Leadership Hall County Class Announced

Gainesville, GA – May 7, 2009: The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Leadership Hall County program seeks to expose 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.

Leadership Hall County was initiated by the Greater Hall Chamber in 1983, and since then over 550 people have graduated from the program. Class members are nominated by former participants and selected by the Leadership Hall County Committee. Leadership Hall County graduates continue to be involved in many areas of volunteer and civic service in our community.
