Nomination and Application Process
Participation in Leadership Georgia is an honor and a privilege. For a participant, with that privilege comes a serious responsibility to take home the learnings of the Leadership Georgia class-year and convert them to action.
The process by which a class is chosen is rigorous. Each year, the Leadership Georgia Selections Committee is faced with assembling a class for the coming year using criteria that is based not only on demonstrated leadership of the applicants, but a class that is also representative of our state on the basis of geography, age, gender, and race. With hundreds of applications to choose from every year, the Committee selects only 63 participants.
A class-year runs from January to December and contains five two-and-a-half day programs. Leadership Georgia’s programs are designed for spousal participation, and spouses are strongly encouraged to attend.
The Class of 2017 has been selected.
Nominations for Class of 2018 will open Mid February!
After Leadership Georgia receives information for nominees, it mails applications and application-instructions. The nominees complete and submit their applications in June, and by late September the Selections Committee decides upon the class and notifies each applicant.
If you are interested in applying for a future Leadership Georgia class please contact one of the following people in your area to nominate you for the 2016 class year:
- Leadership Georgia Alumni
- President of your local Chamber of Commerce
- Georgia Chamber of Commerce Board Members
- President of your local leadership program
Tuition is $3,000 and is due prior to the start of your class year. Limited tuition assistance may be available upon request. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our office at 404-223-2294.
Leadership Georgia accepts nominations in the spring of each year. Leadership Georgia asks its Alumni, Presidents of local Chambers of Commerce, Georgia Chamber of Commerce Board Members and local leadership organizations from all over the state to nominate potential class members.
