The 24 members of the Class of 2023 embarked on their eight-month journey on the road to servant leadership this weekend. Class members attended a 2-day offsite retreat at the Guy Harvey Resort in St. Augustine Beach facilitated by Chamber members Mark Nighbor, One Mark Consulting, and Lisa McGowan, Clear View Coaching, where they learned quite a bit about themselves, St. Johns County, and how to work together to develop and execute a class project. Over the next 8 months, class members will spend one day each month meeting leaders in a variety of sectors within St. Johns County including Social Services; Large and Small Businesses; First Responders, Education, Law Enforcement; Agriculture and the Environment; Government, Healthcare, and Tourism. Follow us each month as we blog on the class’s journey.
The Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership St. Johns (LSJ) program strives to connect and develop community leaders to help drive the success of our local economy as St. Johns County confronts the opportunities and challenges of today and tomorrow. Since 2000, more than 450 St. Johns County leaders have graduated from the program.
St. Johns County’s business, political and non-profit community ranks include many Leadership St. Johns alumni who have and continue to make a positive difference. The LSJ program provides a way to recognize talented individuals within your organization who might benefit from the Leadership St. Johns experience and who can utilize this opportunity to advance your organization’s goals. The strong personal and professional connections that class members make during the program year are invaluable.
