Leadership Coweta is a program that provides existing and emerging leaders with unique opportunities to enhance their civic knowledge of Coweta County, to sharpen their leadership skills and to network with leaders from across the community. For more than 20 years, the program has provided participants a better understanding of how this community works, the opportunity to build relationships with the region’s leaders, and inspiration to use their talents to serve the community.
Garnet Reynolds and Matt Brass are serving as this year’s Leadership Coweta co-chairs, and the theme for the 2016-2017 program is “Get on Board the Energy Bus,” which is based on the book “The Energy Bus” by Jon Gordon. Through its unique 11-month program, Leadership Coweta prepares future community leaders by allowing them to engage in both the formal and informal exchange of ideas and experiences; enhance their personal leadership skills awareness and development; gain knowledge from an in-depth view of community issues; have access to opportunities for community involvement; understand more about the interdependencies between sectors of the local economy as well as the interrelationships of local issues; and receive knowledge on numerous subjects that prepare them for a more active leadership role in the community. The program year runs from September 2016 to May 2017.
