Nearly 500 individuals have participated in Leadership Jones County (LJC) since the first class in 1990. Developed to identify and prepare the community’s future leadership resources, LJC has provided Jones County with a network of current and emerging leaders who possess the skills and sense of commitment to improve our community. LJC has been a model for many other leadership programs throughout the state.

The Jones County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority of Jones County encourage businesses and individuals to become involved in the program’s historic twenty fifth year. If you have an employee, co-worker, friend, relative or neighbor you think wants to learn more about our community, develop their leadership skills and be a part of a group to make Jones County even better, and who has already completed LJC, please let us know.

LJC is made up of a class of no more than 25 men and women who represent a diverse cross section of Jones County.  Interested participants between the ages of 21 and 54 who live and/or work in Jones County are eligible to apply.  Nominations and applications will be accepted until Wednesday, July 22, 2015. Tuition for the program is $350.00.  A limited number of full/partial scholarships are available to those applicants who fulfill certain requirements.  The program begins in August with a team building session followed by six half-day sessions and concludes in May with a graduation ceremony.  Monthly sessions are scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month in various locations in Jones County and a session at our State Capitol in Jackson.

Leadership Jones County is a leadership development program sponsored by the Jones County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority of Jones County.  Anyone interested in additional information or an application may contact the Chamber of Commerce at (601) 649-3031 or apply online by downloading the PDF.  Application deadline is Wednesday, July 22, 2015.
