  • Leadership Programs

    The Thomaston-Upson Chamber offers two different leadership programs geared towards the Upson County community. 

    Adult Leadership Upson

    Adult Leadership Upson is a comprehensive, results-oriented leadership development program administered by the Thomaston-Upson Chamber of Commerce. The program is designed to inspire and prepare graduates to be active and effective leaders in the Upson County Community.

    Participants are selected by an application and interview process. Once the class has been selected, this 12 month program allows potential leaders the chance to learn more about the community in which they live in or serve

    The Adult Leadership Upson Class of 2018 have been selected and those participating in the program this year are: Nash Austin (EMC Engineering), Joey Barrett (Georgia Power Company), Nate Crawford (Hannah's Mill Animal Hospital), Chandler English (Upson Regional Medical Center), Tracy Harper (SouthCrest Bank), Al Hinson (Thomaston Hospice), Ben James (United Bank), Alex Perry (EMC Engineering), Michael Powell (Upson County Family Connections), Bryce Robinson (Thomaston-Upson School System), Katie Salter (Tidal Wave) and Russell Thompson (City of Thomaston).

  • Youth Leadership Upson

    The Youth Leadership Upson Program is sanctioned by the Chamber and sponsored by Upson EMC, TenCate Protective Fabrics and Upson-Lee High School. Students must fill out an application form and have two references/recommendations submitted before they are considered for the program.

    The mission of YOUTH LEADERSHIP UPSON is to expose selected high school students exhibiting leadership traits to the business, political and civic working of our community.

    This group is made up of seniors, juniors and sophomores that are residents of Upson County and who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills in their school, church and community.  Each student is selected for a one-year school term and to successfully complete the program, a student must attend each scheduled class.

    The Thomaston-Upson Chamber of Commerce and Upson EMC are pleased to announce the Youth Leadership Upson Class for the 2017-2018 school year: Averi Caldwell, Eli Eubanks, Savannah Gregg, Macy Huckaby, Caroline Irvin, Cace Kilby, Cade Kilby, Hayden Marks, Hayden Mullins, McKenzie Smith, Micah Smith, Bickley Reeves and Lillie Waters.
