Leadership Brunswick County is a program sponsored by Brunswick Community College and the Southport-Oak Island Area, North Brunswick and Brunswick County Chambers of Commerce to develop corps of informed, committed and qualified individuals capable of providing dynamic leadership for Brunswick County. Beginning each September for nine months, program participants travel throughout the county visiting various locations and interacting with existing leaders in social, political, economic, cultural and educations systems.
Due to issues related to COVID-19, The Leadership Brunswick County Organizing Committee has canceled the 2020/2021 class. “The health of our participants and presenters is priority. In addition, the Committee was concerned that a virtual environment would affect the participants ability to make the personal interactions necessary to create lasting support networks.” said Timothy Randall, chair of the Leadership Brunswick County Organizing Committee.
Randall continued by saying “We look forward to resuming the program in September 2021”.
Since 1996, Leadership Brunswick County has been a program sponsored by Brunswick Community College, the Southport-Oak Island Area, North Brunswick and Brunswick County Chambers of Commerce to develop corps of informed, committed and qualified individuals capable of providing dynamic leadership for Brunswick County. It is designed to identify highly-motivated, emerging leaders and educate them about the needs of our community, as well as the dynamics of social and economic changes.
Working to develop and enrich existing and emerging community leaders who are qualified and committed to the growth and well-being of Brunswick County, the program provides opportunity for participants to learn about the needs of the county and the individuals responsible for providing services to meet those needs. For Brunswick County to thrive and prosper in the next century we will need dedicated leaders with new ideas working together.

Applicants should currently hold, be retired from, or have the potential to advance to a management/leadership position.
