Leadership Dawson is a dynamic program supported by the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce since 1992. For each Leadership class, a diverse and qualified group of individuals are selected to participate.

Through a retreat, interactive activities, presentations, discussions and work sessions, the program seeks to inspire those who are willing to get involved. Participants are given the opportunity to meet and interact with current community, business, and government leaders throughout the program. In addition to gaining valuable leadership skills and insight about our community, participants will gain a new network of relationships with individuals throughout diverse sectors of our community.
