Leadership Union County

Mission: To identify and invest in the future leaders of Union County.

Leadership Union County is a ten-month program with a focus on identifying and developing the future leaders of our community. Through a series of retreats, sessions and activities, class members build close relationships as they learn about issues that affect our local community, including economic development, government, education, healthcare, crime and quality of life. Each full-day session features various interactive simulations and activities aimed at showing class members how they can make a difference.

Class 8 will begin February 2019. We would like to thank our sponsor .
If you have any questions regarding this leadership development program,
please contact the Chamber at (870) 863-6113 or jaren@goeldorado.com
