Leadership Jones Starts in January

Leadership Jones Starts in January

Leadership Jones begins in January 2012 and runs through August 2012.

Leadership Jones is designed to promote awareness of county-wide issues by bringing diverse leaders from across Jones County together to learn more about and discuss current matters. Through hard hitting annual programs, Leadership Jones allows leaders to gain a deeper insight into these issues and prepares them for a more active role in Jones County.

The Leadership Jones program is an educational experience rather than a program of advocacy. A topic of wide concern is selected for each program and outstanding authorities are brought in to lead discussions designated to foster thought and action.
