Leadership Galveston 2007

The Leadership Galveston program was revived during 1995 as a project of Galveston College's Leadership Institute in partnership with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce. The Leadership Galveston members now boast over 300 former graduates of diverse backgrounds and experiences that studied the social and economic aspects of Galveston in previous leadership classes between 1984-1990 and 1995 - 2005.

The purpose of Leadership Galveston is to develop leaders by providing an educational program on the needs, challenges, and service learning opportunities in the City of Galveston and to provide motivation for the leadership candidates to become involved in Galveston's future.

Its objectives are to: (1) acquaint participants with Galveston's history, government, economy and resources along with the problems and challenges facing the City; (2) offer participants the opportunity to meet and develop working relationships with current leaders and decision makers; and (3) encourage program participants to actively become involved in community leadership roles.

Acceptance in the program is based upon potential leadership skills, involvement in community affairs and concern for the future of Galveston. As civic, business and government leaders tackle current issues, a new generation of leadership is training to overcome the obstacles that face Galveston and those that will arise in the coming years. Leadership Galveston is a training ground, providing participants with the necessary skills to meet the challenges.

Dates: Fridays – September 21, October 5, October 19, November 2, November 16, and December 7. The cost is $325 per registrant.  For more information call Joe Huff, Director of Public Affairs and Galveston College Foundation at (409) 944-1302
