Harrison County Development Corporation (HCDC) will be offering a leadership course entitled “Leadership Harrison” for people interested in learning more about Harrison County and how leadership can benefit their communities, organizations or businesses. Organized in early 2012, it was created by an interest in developing future leaders within Harrison County.
The mission of Leadership Harrison is to develop leaders who will participate in the growth of the county and promote its development. As a program of HCDC, the goal of Leadership Harrison is to create an understanding of how the county and communities work, increase leadership skills, and provide an incentive for leadership. In return, the participants will become even more effective leaders who will strengthen and transform their communities, organizations and the county as a whole. The class will also work together on a project of their choosing to show their leadership skills and must be beneficial to the county overall.
This course will run for six months. Participants will meet for one 8-hour day each month beginning in January 2017 and running through June 2017. Classes are on the second Wednesday of the month.
