LEADERSHIP BRYAN
In June 2011, Leadership Bryan will graduate its 13th class after spending six months addressing key issues facing Bryan County. Like similar leadership development programs offered by other Chambers of Commerce, Leadership Bryan is modeled after a nationwide community awareness and leadership training effort. The program identifies potential business and civic leaders and equips them with the knowledge and experience necessary to make an impact in Bryan County. Throughout the course, participants tour parts of Bryan County and address critical community issues along the way.

Topics studied throughout the program include the environment, leadership, communications/team-building, history, government/ military and economic development. Each session features behind-the-scenes tours, opportunities to interact with established community leaders and team building activities.
