Leadership Beaufort is a fun, educational, and rewarding program sponsored by the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce that is designed to meet our community’s needs for the active involvement of informed and dedicated community leaders. Developed by the Chamber to ensure a continuing reservoir of leadership talent for the future, Leadership Beaufort consists of a series of one-day sessions designed to inform, to challenge, and to motivate leaders to become involved in supporting and directing the future of Beaufort County.
The program provides participants with an in-depth look at specific topics of community interest, such as city and county government, education, health resources, non-profit organizations, law enforcement and the courts, and economic diversity of Beaufort County.
The course is designed for those who represent various businesses and professional sectors of the community as well as individual potential community leaders. Those who want to learn more about the community while developing and refining leadership skills are encouraged to participate, whether they are new to Beaufort County or have lived here all their lives.
You can request an application at the Chamber or download one online. You can also nominate someone that you think would be a good candidate.
