Leadership Evans

    Leadership Evans is a comprehensive adult leadership development program of the Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce, designed to develop, train, motivate, and recognize existing and emerging leaders in Evans County.


    Participation is open to adults, age 18 and over, who have demonstrated leadership potential, an interest in the community, and a willingness to fully participate in the Leadership Evans program.


    The Leadership Evans program is held biennially during even numbered years. The program historically begins in January and concludes with a graduation ceremony in May. Each class session exposes the Leadership Evans participants to various aspects of Evans County and covers a wide array of topics including local government, history, understanding community socio-demographics, economic development, and leading change. The program also includes a mandatory retreat and field trips/tours.


    The life of Evans County depends upon the actions of citizens who respond to the call for leadership. Leadership training is an important component of progressive community life. Leadership Evans wants to be the springboard for emerging leaders in our community.
