Strategic Leadership Visit

Born out of the Cobb’s Competitive EDGE strategy, this tour of an outstanding peer community allows Cobb leadership to gain best practices and valuable insight into successful community and economic development projects. Our goal for each visit is to explore innovative ideas and programs and build strategic partnerships to shape the success of our county and impact positive community change.

Over the past few years Chamber leadership and members have visited Fairfax, Va.; Cleveland, Ohio; Dallas, Tx.; Denver, Co., Portland, Or. and Austin, Tx. These trips examine how other cities attract talent and define its communities, highlight the city’s business incubators, entertainment facilities and transit solutions, and provide the opportunity to meet with local economic development leaders.

This year, our group will travel to Toronto, Ontario, combining all the aspects of our strategic visit with an elite opportunity to be part of our chamber's first trade mission to Canada. Select groups will have the opportunity to visit companies that align with Cobb's target industry sectors. 

NOTE: With this being an international trip, a valid passport will be needed for travel.

For more information on the upcoming Strategic Leadership Visit, contact Slade Gulledge at sgulledge@cobbchamber.org or 770-859-2322.
