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 through the following:

  • Education - Stimulating monthly programs held in locations throughout Upson County provide participants with insight on, and understanding of, a variety of important community issues.
  • Networks - Strong networks of valuable relationships are developed as participants who are selected to represent a variety of occupations and professional interests interact regularly during a retreat and other social activities.
  • Involvement - In-depth community-oriented projects provide a unique opportunity to increase community awareness, develop interpersonal skills and contribute to the community's progress.
  • Personal Enrichment - Special skills sessions result in increased self-esteem and self-confidence. Participants also earn leadership credentials upon completion of the program. Successful completion requires an investment of time and energy. A sincere commitment will prove beneficial to the participant and the community.

The 2023-2024 Leadership Upson Program will begin in January 2024 and end in November 2024. Applications for 2023-2024 are now open and will close on November 10, 2023. Completed applications can be dropped off at the Chamber Office or emailed to Madison at
