ABOUT LEADERSHIP SOUTHEAST GEORGIA
Beginning in January 1999, leaders representing the business, local government and education communities in 10 southeast Georgia counties set about the difficult task of creating a regional strategic plan for community and economic development. A regional leadership program that brought together citizens from each of the 10 counties in the coastal region was envisioned as a means of reinforcing the regional capacity to address challenges and capitalize on common opportunities. The region includes Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties along with their 35 municipalities. Program content focuses on the assets of the area, as well as potential threats to those assets.
