About Us

Leadership Blount County is a community leadership enhancement and development program designed to identify and increase the number of community volunteers who support various organizations. A volunteer Board of Directors and an Executive Director oversee the selection of class members, development of curriculum, and administration of the program. It is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

By selecting participants with diverse backgrounds and both established and potential community leaders, Leadership Blount County seeks to provide a large number of well-trained, highly motivated citizens to assume leadership roles in our civic, educational, economic development, cultural and philanthropic organizations and groups.

Program Structure
Each year, a class of approximately 36 people is selected by a volunteer committee of alumni from nominations received from the community. The Board and staff plan and conduct full-day sessions each month for the ten-month duration of the annual program. Monthly topics include History and Heritage, Local Government, Business and Industry, Education, Health Care, Social Services, Arts, and Public Services.

Cost
Tuition for the program is $1,100.00. This payment covers some fees and course materials, as well as some meals and transportation. Optional or special activities may require additional costs. A limited number of partial scholarships may be available for eligible candidates. The tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable after payment is received.

Connect
