A program brought on by the Chamber of Gadsden-Etowah County held a leadership event at the new Gadrock Microgym. The Leadership Etowah program is held each year to bring together local leaders for retreats. The program is designed to help local leaders learn new ways to approach issue oriented forums using basic key elements of leadership.
Leaders spend several days visiting organizations and institutions across Etowah County that helps them understand the priorities and problems facing the county. Business owner Martell Hall tells TV24 why he saw it important to participate in this year’s event.
This program is even for leaders who have spent majority of their lives in Etowah County. Leadership Etowah shares information and skills to help better lead the community and challenges participants to listen, learn, and expand their leadership skills.
Executive Director Tammy Jackson says she was shocked and excited to be going home with a new positive outlook on how to better her leadership skills.
Jackson also adds that she believes all leaders in Etowah County should participate in this event to help better the quality of life for all citizens.
