Leadership Magnolia

The mission of the program is to improve the quality of life in the community by developing leaders who will recognize, address, and find solutions to critical issues. Participants must have the “qualities of a good leader” – the sense of personal responsibility, willingness to sacrifice one’s own interest for the welfare of others, courage to set the tone for action through personal example and to accept, understand and overcome challenges.

Sessions combine forums, tours, dialogue, and interaction between speakers and participants. Subjects include government, quality of life, education, health care, economy, human services, industry technology, and community heritage.

Leadership Magnolia seeks to identify and motivate both existing and potential community leaders with community needs, problems, and opportunities. Participants are given the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, learn more about their community, and build civic networks.

The program requires a serious commitment from participants. Applicants should be prepared to devote one day per month (for ten months) to the program, beginning in August and continuing through May. The success of this program will depend on full participation by the individuals. Those who are unable to make this commitment should not apply. Leadership Magnolia tuition is $450 per individual. Partial scholarships may be available for those who qualify for financial assistance. 

Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce is promoting Columbia County Young Professionals Network (CCYPN). This program is a group of dynamic individuals under age 45 who are dedicated to civic participation, professional and personal growth, and have a shared interest in making Columbia County a more attractive place for young professionals to live and work. See the attached brochure for more information or to register.
