The Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for Leadership Georgetown Countyís 2014-2015 class.
Leadership Georgetown County provides leadership training and professional development through interaction with community leaders, experiential learning and network building opportunities for participants.
Businesses are encouraged to send employees through the program; individuals may also apply on their own.
