2012-2013 Leadership Bay Class Graduates
May 22, 2013

On May 21st, a reception was held in the honor of the 30th Class of Leadership Bay at the Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. The event was attended by the class participants, their employers and family members, the Leadership Bay Steering Committee and the Chamber Board of Directors.


The group began their nine-month curriculum with a weekend retreat at Tyndall Air Force Base in October of last year. Every other Wednesday the class explored the various segments of Bay County's economy, i.e., Tourism, Industry, Military, Law Enforcement, Local and State Government, Community Volunteerism, Communications/Media, Healthcare and Ecology. Each class is responsible for developing a project of benefit to the Chamber and/or community. 


This year's project was the creation of the Emergency Service Function 18 and creating a co-op plan for businesses to implement.


Of course, we can't have Leadership Bay without the support and hard work from the
