Leadership Bryan

The Leadership Bryan Program is designed to expose business and area leaders to the opportunities and challenges facing our community as well as to promote and foster the development of leadership. The sessions educate and prepare community leaders who are committed to shaping the County's future. Class members will experience a high level of community awareness as they engage in the seven-month program.


The purpose of Leadership Bryan is reflected in its goals:

  1. To develop awareness of the Bryan County area as part of the Greater Savannah region - its strengths, challenges and opportunities.
  2. To enhance leadership abilities.
  3. To create a network of informed, concerned leaders.
  4. To encourage greater involvement in the community.

Our Leadership Bryan Steering Committee consists of Leadership Bryan Alumni whom help facilitate the program and assist in coordinating the sessions.
