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.
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.
The Leadership Blount office is located on the Maryville College campus. The building is named the Alexander House and can be reached via the Maryville College Circle Drive or by turning on to Alexander Street from Lamar Alexander Parkway (across from the hospital and next to US Bank).
