Class members will be selected from business, industry, education, government and other professions, as well as from volunteer, civic and religious organizations. Leadership Cobb, which is in its 31st year, develops leadership skills and promotes professional and personal growth through experiential learning opportunities. Class members are introduced to a variety of viewpoints, illustrating the array of economic, political, educational and social factors at work in Cobb County. Leadership Cobb program days combine lectures and dialogue with speakers, as well as class member interaction with leaders representing all facets of the Cobb community.
Nominees should be able to assume increased community responsibilities, as the program demands significant time and effort for 10 consecutive months.

The program begins fall 2014 and runs through spring 2015.
