I was in the 2015-2016 Gwinnett Senior Leadership class. As a veteran Gwinnett reporter, I thought I knew all there was to know about the county, but I was wrong! This class gives its members an up-close-and-personal at what makes the very foundation of the community work, and work so well.
I thought that I knew Gwinnett pretty well before this Senior Leadership experience since my ancestors began moving in here in the 1820s. However, I was delightfully surprised to learn how many services and protections that we have available to all of our citizens. This has been an eye-opening experience.
My participating in Gwinnett Senior Leadership 2016 was one of the best professional experiences I’ve had since relocating here. What the board and the committee does to bring this opportunity together is nothing short of commitment, passion and pride. I look forward to reconnecting to the friends that I've made, and also taking my experience and exposure to another level of engagement in my community and county.
I was in the Gwinnett Senior Leadership class of 1999-2000. This was a great experience for me and I learned a lot about our county. I thought that I was already knowledgeable about Gwinnett, having lived here all of my life, however, it was amazing how much more I learned on those excursions. I also met a lot of nice people. In fact, everything we saw meant more, because I was seeing it through the eyes of class members, too. I would recommend this program to everyone who is interested in learning more about our county, and also in getting to know more about its leaders. I came away with a much deeper appreciation of Gwinnett County.
Gwinnett Senior Leadership is one of the best leadership programs in Gwinnett County. The commitment and dedication of the board and committees far exceeds expectations. Many of them hold full time jobs and are involved with city and county leadership, yet have made this program a passion. That passion begins with the nomination process through the program, to graduation and beyond, as many continue their professional and personal relationships as a direct result of the program.
Board members and program chairs for Gwinnett Senior Leadership went above and beyond the call of duty to produce interesting and informative program days for class members. I looked forward to meeting and hearing from our community leaders each month and I was impressed with the caliber of these individuals. I would highly recommend the Gwinnett Senior Leadership program to those who live and/or work in Gwinnett County.
Gwinnett Senior Leadership was a great way to connect with people with similar interests to mine. From a business standpoint, it was a great way to network, to share ideas, and to make new contacts. I made great friends and continue to stay involved as an alumni!
