Leadership Hall County Nominations

The Greater Hall Chamber Leadership Hall County program provides a learning experience for existing and emerging leaders of the Greater Hall area. Participants of the program are given the opportunity to develop an understanding of our community.

Participants include a cross-section of individuals, primarily between the ages of 25 and 40. Participants must be at least 25 years old and a resident of Hall County.

Participants develop leadership skills and knowledge of the community through a series of one-day sessions, September through May. Topics covered include arts and education, health, city and state governments, social services, and economic/leadership development.

Tuition for each participant is $500. Each participant is responsible for paying his/her own tuition. Fees are used to provide honorariums for speakers, transportation, meals, social activities and administrative costs. Limited scholarships are available.

Individuals must be nominated (by March 15, 2002) for the program. Once an applicant is nominated, he or she will be asked to complete a detailed application. All applicants are reviewed by a selection committee and final participants are selected from all applicants submitted.
