Applications are now available for participation in the 2022 cohort of the Middle Georgia Regional Leadership Champions program.

The Middle Georgia Regional Leadership Champions (MGRLC) program is a collaborative effort of the Middle Georgia Regional Commission, in partnership with the University of Georgia’s J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government. The program is designed to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders from across Middle Georgia to develop enhanced leadership capacity within the region and actively shape the future vision of a thriving Middle Georgia.

Designed to create awareness and advocacy around the importance of regionalism, the MGRLC program offers an advanced, one-of-a-kind leadership development opportunity that will
facilitate both individual and regional competencies around strategic goals and priorities. Originally started in 2015, the MGRLC program is now welcoming its sixth class of community
leaders. Participants will play a vital part in establishing a foundation for the region to collectively respond to and prepare for future growth needs and challenges. In 2018, the program received the Innovation in Community Leadership Award from the J.W. Fanning Institute.

Applications are due by Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 5:00 PM. Visit the MGRC website for more information about the program, as well as for the program application.
