LEADERSHIP LAKE MARTIN
Leadership Lake Martin is a ten-month leadership training program designed to inform, inspire and empower community leaders throughout the Lake Martin area.
The comprehensive classes provide emerging leaders with a broader understanding and heightened awareness of the problems, opportunities, and resources in our area. Participants will form a core group of leaders who serve Tallapoosa and Coosa Counties. Each Leadership class will be comprised of representatives from diverse backgrounds representing business, industry, education, healthcare and the private sector. The program's small, intimate classes are structured for a meaningful interchange of ideas and views by all participants. Class orientation is held in August, and a two-day retreat follows in September. Day-long class sessions are held October through April, with the year culminating in May for Leadership graduation. Participants are also divided into projects groups in which they plan, develop and implement community service projects designed for the betterment of our community. Monthly class days include Education Day, Criminal Justice Day, City of Alexander City Day, County Government/City of Dadeville Day, Healthcare Day, Economic Development Day and Legislative Day.
The Leadership Lake Martin Board of Directors meets monthly to provide the direction, recruitment and curriculum of the current Leadership class. The Board serves as the policy making/governing body for the program and members take a very active role in each monthly agenda. Leadership Lake Martin is sponsored in partnership by the Alexander City Chamber of Commerce and Central Alabama Community College.
