    Strong leadership is an essential ingredient in the continuing development of a community. Leadership Coweta, sponsored by the Newnan-Coweta Chamber, 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 our community works, opportunity to build relationships with the region’s leaders and inspiration to use their talents to
    serve the community.

    • Formal and informal exchanges of ideas and experiences
    • Enhanced personal leadership skills awareness and development
    • In-depth view of community issues
