GAINESVILLE - The 22 participants of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce's (GHCC's) inaugural class of The Wisdom Project recently graduated.
The class participated in a series of interactive discussions with community leaders, explored local industries and organizations through on-site visits, learned about area challenges and opportunities and discovered new ways to engage in the community. They will put their new knowledge to work by completing a group service project in early 2013.
The Wisdom Project’s Spring Session begins with a kick off class on Friday, February 1, and will include seven class sessions February – May, concluding on May 3.
The Wisdom Project is a senior leadership program and part of the VISION 2030 Initiative developed and presented by the chamber and Brenau University’s Center for Lifetime Study. It is designed for age 55+ members of the community and seeks to encourage retired and semi-retired individuals to use their "wisdom and talents in creative ways through action and advocacy."
Nominations and applications are currently being accepted for the Spring 2013 Session. Download an application online at vision2030.org or contact Meg Nivens at 770-532-6206. firstname.lastname@example.org
