     Heroes Unite

    This storied Chamber program empowers Coweta's next generation of community 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.



    Impact & Influence

    Leadership Coweta Alliance 

  • The NCC's Leadership Coweta Alliance has long-served as a sustainable source of local pioneers who, through the program, have become proven community partners. Leadership Coweta reflects a diverse group of local business leaders in terms of race, gender, and occupation. Class members represent areas such as social services, government, business, and cultural and educational organizations. The program assembles and activates members to better-identify and understand challenges within the community and to recognize the resources necessary to advocate for solutions. But, the keen interaction among class members is what ultimately informs the program's success
