1990 – 2020 Thirty Years of Leadership Development

For thirty years the Economic Development Authority of Jones County and the Jones County Community Development Foundation have encouraged businesses and individuals to become more involved in the future growth of the community through leadership development programs. Over 500 have graduated from Leadership Jones County (LJC) since the first class in 1990. Developed to identify and prepare the community’s future leadership resources, LJC has provided Jones County with a network of current and emerging leaders who possess the skills and sense of commitment needed to improve our community.

The Projects that have been designed and implemented by LJC project teams have been improvements to our area that most likely would not have been possible without the dedication, drive and determination of you the Alumni of LJC. On behalf of the elected officials and all the citizens of Jones County, WE say a BIG THANK YOU!! Our community is a better place because of you!

This year will be a year of celebration for Leadership Jones County. All Alumni members are invited to apply for a specially designed “30th Reunion” program just for them. The program will include an Ice-Breaker/Orientation/Dinner, a Retreat and four, full-day sessions culminating in May with graduation. See the schedule below. The tuition for the program is $350.

This will be your opportunity to reunite with former classmates and meet LJC Alums in a program designed especially for you.  The energizing new curriculum will include in-depth discussions and activities that will focus on PEARLS; People, Environment, Advantages, Responsibilities, Lessons and Skills.

Space is limited so, apply today! Deadline to apply is October 18th!
