LEADERSHIP GILLESPIE COUNTY
This program, started in 1994, takes a group of community leaders on a two-year journey of learning all there is to know about the goings-on of the area in which they live, do business, and have fun. During the first year, participants attend a retreat and nine educational sessions, followed by graduation. In the second year, graduates help recruit new participants for the next class, organize some of the functions which new class members will attend, and serve as their mentors.
For the first time in the history of this program, it has a presenting partner in Methodist Hill Country This partnership investment will allow the Chamber to deepen the program and have the resources to enrich the participant experience. As our county’s largest employer, Methodist knows the power of broadening community leadership. Thank you Methodist Hospital Hill Country!
