Started by the Fayette Chamber of Commerce in 1980, Leadership Fayette strives to empower and encourage a diverse group of existing and emerging leaders that are prepared and committed to serving Fayette County. The program provides opportunities for individuals to enhance their civic knowledge of Fayette County, hone their leadership skills and network with leaders across the community. Leadership Fayette provides a hands-on educational experience with emphasis on economic development and community awareness, focusing on the interdependencies between sectors of the local economy, as well as the interrelationships of a variety of local issues. Participants will receive a better understanding of how our community works, will build relationships with the region’s leaders and will be inspired to apply their talents to serve the community.
New for 2022, Leadership Fayette is partnering with the University of Georgia Fanning Institute for Leadership Development for expert facilitation for the morning portion of each class. Afternoons will be spent engaged in activities that connect students to the topic locally.
