  • What is Leadership Coweta?

    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, sharpen their leadership skills and connect with leaders from across the community. For more than 20 years, the program has provided participants with a better understanding of how our community works, the opportunity to build relationships with the region’s leaders, and inspiration to use their talents to serve the community.

    Through presentations, discussions, and work sessions, the program seeks to inspire those who are willing to get involved. Participants are given the opportunity to meet and interact with the current community and business leaders throughout the program.

    Participants in Leadership Coweta benefit from getting to know one another and from the exchange of ideas and experiences. The class members are exposed to topics including: Leadership, Government and Civic Engagement, Economic Development, Social Services and Corporate Citizenship, Education, Public Safety, Wellness and Recreation, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

    25 participants are identified each year for this highly selective program. Prospective participants must complete a detailed application including skills, professional experience, and community involvement. The time commitment for participants includes 10 full-day sessions from September – May, a graduation luncheon and homework assignments, and a service project. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory.

  • As we move toward curating a beneficial experience for the incoming class and one that is tailored to today’s unique challenges in social, civic, and professional leadership, we’ll tap into the experience and expertise of local and regional thought-leaders to craft impactful class content and experiences.  We can’t do this without your support!

    Below you will find a link to the class topics and information about the benefits of sponsoring a class day, personally or through your business or organization. With nine focus areas to choose from, there’s likely to be a topic that resonates. We hope that you’ll consider paying it forward in helping the Chamber craft an experience that inspires participants emerging from the program as the next generation of thoughtful, impactful, and motivated local leaders.

  • The hallmark of the Leadership Coweta Alliance program is essentially the output, as each of the nearly two-dozen classes to date have marked their experience with a significant community project. Working in teams, each leading a complementary initiative, the 2019 class supported the out-of-the-box efforts of Newnan's Ruth Hill Elementary School, including their innovative Launch Pad Library. Lending their time and talents, one Alliance group pioneered a website whereby the school can provide a "blueprint" for other institutions who wish to follow suit.

    Other groups worked with Ruth Hill students to develop an herb garden that could be maintained and showcased by the students, as well as a business plan to foster entrepreneurship.
