Leadership Harrison


Harrison County’s outstanding livability makes it an attractive place to live, work and play.  From our quality schools to affordable cost of living to access to state–of–the–art healthcare to the abundant recreation, cultural and entertainment opportunities, Harrison County has what it takes to attract and retain talent needed to fuel business growth.



Harrison County Development Corporation (HCDC) will be offering a leadership course entitled “Leadership Harrison” for people interested in learning more about Harrison County and how leadership can benefit their communities, organizations or businesses. Organized in early 2012, it was created by an interest in developing future leaders within Harrison County.



The mission of Leadership Harrison is to develop leaders who will participate in the growth of the county and promote its development. As a program of HCDC, the goal of Leadership Harrison is to create an understanding of how the county and communities work, increase leadership skills, and provide an incentive for leadership. In return, the participants will become even more effective leaders who will strengthen and transform their communities, organizations and the county as a whole.



The class will also work together on a project of their choosing, from ideas gathered from the speakers and/or HCDC, to show their leadership skills and must be beneficial to the County overall and approved by HCDC.



This course will run for six months.  Participants will meet for one 8-hour day each month beginning in January and running through June.  A graduation ceremony will be held in July.  Classes are on the second Wednesday of the month. Attendance at 5 of the 6 sessions is necessary for graduation as well as participation in the class project.



This year’s sessions will be held on:


  • Session 1 – January 12, 2022
  • Session 2 – February 9, 2022
  • Session 3 – March 9, 2022

  • Session 5 – May 11, 2022
  • Session 6 – June 8, 2022
