Leadership Southeast Georgia is pleased to announce that Georgia Power, A Southern Company, and Savannah-headquartered Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. are presenting sponsors for the 2017 class of regional leaders.

In addition to sponsoring the program, both organizations support the program in a variety of ways, such as providing educational opportunities for each class.

“Southeast Georgia is the very same territory the Georgia Power Coastal Region is proud to serve," said Jason Coley, regional manager at Georgia Power Co. "We have long been supporters of leadership development which promotes economic development and improves the quality of life in this part of the state.”

Beginning in January 1999, leaders representing the business, local government and education communities in 10 southeast Georgia counties set about the task of creating a leadership program that crosses districts to promote community and economic development.

The annual five-month leadership program is designed to equip and empower community leaders to work effectively to promote positive growth while improving the quality of life in the Southeast Georgia Coastal Region.

All of the leadership program participants live and work within Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties, which together are known as Georgia’s Coastal Region.
