“We will continue our vigilance around the safety and wellness of participants and volunteers, while providing the elite experience that Leadership Augusta members have come to know,” said 2022 Class Chair Kim Evans, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Augusta.
Leadership Augusta was established in 1980 as an affiliate of the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, to enhance the civic participation of emerging leaders within the region.
The Leadership Augusta Class of 2022 will bring together 30 people from business, education, the arts, law, nonprofit, medicine, construction and city government. This decades-old program will help participants learn, listen, engage in tough conversations and cultivate curiosity in an authentic way to address challenges and opportunities in our community through service projects.
