  • Leadership Rome XXXV, current Leadership Rome Class, during their first meeting with Steve Dennis, Motivation Unlimited. 
  • A community cannot grow without good and progressive leadership. Leaders from all segments of the community must work together to develop plans for their future. Leaders are those individuals who are willing to question the status quo, and to determine whether or not there is a better way.

    Recognizing the need for developing leaders for Rome and Floyd County, the Rome Floyd Chamber established the Leadership Rome Program. The purpose of the program is to provide an understanding of what a leader is, to create an awareness of issues facing our community, and to discuss how leaders should deal with these issues.

    Patterned after the Leadership Georgia Program, the Leadership Rome Program consists of an Orientation/Ice Breaker for the participants; a Ropes course; an overnight retreat; seven sessions of approximately six hours each; a spring retreat; and Graduation. Each month's session is conducted by outstanding authorities on the topic of the day. Discussions will be held that are designed to enlighten the participants on situations and opportunities in the Greater Rome Area.

    Those individuals selected to participate in Leadership Rome represent the educational, financial, industrial, governmental, legal, religious, medical, and retail/small business communities. Through the interaction of this diverse group, participants will learn about the ideas and interests of those from differing backgrounds. The deeper understanding of people throughout the community, and the knowledge that participants will gain about the problems facing the Greater Rome Area will equip graduates of Leadership Rome to take more active leadership roles in the affairs of Rome and Floyd County.

    Lifetime friendship will be formed among members of each class, and the experience is one that will not be soon forgotten!!
