Leadership Macon provides leadership training and community orientation to individuals seeking to become more involved in the growth and development of Macon and Bibb County. Leadership Macon is a year-long program that introduces a class of upcoming community leaders to the attributes of, and challenges to Macon and Bibb County so that the class can explore possible projects and solutions, interact with political and community leaders, and develop relationships that will benefit each class member and the community for years to come. Class members attend a weekend retreat at the beginning of the year, followed by monthly seminars on such topics as Housing, Education, Servant Leadership, Economic Development, Race Relations, Tourism, and Local Government.    



Since class size is limited, each year's class is chosen through nominations and evaluation of their leadership traits and potential. Leadership Macon takes nominations for potential applicants from alumni or any other interested citizens. This process is handled using an online form that collects nominations. Candidates must agree to attend all monthly sessions during their class year. The candidate must pay tuition for the class: $1650 for chamber members and $1900 for non members. Payment arrangements and scholarship assistance are available.
