These participants gained knowledge from various sectors of the community and took part in leadership modules provided by the Fanning Institute of Leadership at the University of Georgia.
“I strongly encourage our business and community leaders to participate in this program, so that better relationships between the business community and our local government can be established. I think it’s very helpful to learn how local government entities work and the enormous challenges that a growing community like Liberty County faces.
