Leadership Southeast Georgia Seeks Nominations For Class of 2024
The professional development and leadership program empowers participants to address regional challenges and capitalize on common opportunities.
LSEGA gathers a diverse cohort of working professionals from Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties to form lasting relationships as they learn about and engage in constructive examination and debate of critical issues facing the development of the region. One of the goals of the program is to improve the individual leadership competencies of participants, in turn benefiting the community as a whole.
"We need ambitious individuals who will work together to tackle the unique challenges of our region," said Kendria Lee, deputy chief of staff for Georgia Southern University and LSEGA Chair of the board of directors. "We eagerly await the next batch of determined and passionate leaders who share our commitment to making our community thrive."
Participants develop a deeper knowledge about Southeast Georgia and explore key issues that are common across the region, helping to create an informed perspective on the relationship between individual communities.
The five sessions begin in February of 2024 and will conclude in June. Each two- to three-day session is held in different counties around the coastal region, where matters of infrastructure, industry, business and community development are examined. Sessions include facility tours and panel presentations, as well as personal growth and development exercises for the participants.
"Our region has faced challenges, but we remain steadfast in our mission to create a better place to live and do business," Lee added. "We're looking for leaders who are ready to roll up their sleeves and tackle the unique challenges of our area. Effective leadership requires individuals who possess the ability to work in harmony and drive progress. Come and be a part of Leadership Southeast Georgia's impactful journey."
Candidates may self-nominate or be nominated by LSEGA alumni, their employers, or other community leaders. Nominations may be submitted on the LSEGA website at lsega.com/nominate.
