About LJC

LJC Class of 2016

Leadership Johns Creek (LJC) is designed to develop leadership talent in individuals representing the Johns Creek community through a structured series of learning experiences.  The program consists of an evening orientation, one two-day retreat, seven one-day sessions, a class project and a graduation. Meetings and activities are distributed over a ten-month period beginning in September. In addition to leadership training and development, class participants gain insight into business, government, community quality of life, volunteer service and local history.  Graduates of LJC are projected to be the future leaders of Johns Creek, leading civic and business organizations for community action and improvement.

Potential participants must be nominated and complete an application process before acceptance into the program.  Because it is both an honor and a privilege to be selected for the Leadership Johns Creek program, the highest degree of commitment is expected of all participants.

Tuition fees cover the participants' program costs, including the opening overnight retreat, leadership training sessions, and all program day group activities and meals.  Corporate and business sponsors help cover the remaining costs of the program.

LJC's Class of 2016 thanks Platinum sponsors:  City of Johns Creek, Emory Johns Creek Hospital and Northside Hospital; and Gold sponsors CH2MHILL, Gwinnett Medical Center - Duluth and CH2M Hill for their generous support of the program.
