Leadership in Loudon County
About The Program
The goal of our Leadership in Loudon Program is to identify and support leaders in the community.
The nomination period begins in October, Invitations are sent to nominees in November, and class is determined by end of December. Orientation starts in February and graduation is in November.
Classes are held on the third Tuesday of each month beginning in February with an Orientation. March is overnight trip to Nashville, April – November features: Local Government, Public Safety, Education, Tourism, Agriculture, Health Care, Social Services, and Business and Industry – Graduation is in November. The class is responsible for a class project and attending a school board meeting, a county
commission meeting (as a group) and a city council meeting. You can miss two classes and still graduate, but you are responsible for getting with a classmate and writing a report covering the day that you missed.
The cost of the class is $800 and that covers all your expense (transportation to/from and overnight in Nashville with three meals, lunches during class days, graduation). The program is operated by the Foundation and your class leader is Leadership Coordinator Klair Kimmey.
