Leadership Nassau, a program coordinated by the Nassau County Chamber of Commerce, has announced the graduation of Class 22. This exclusive program assists in the development of community leaders by providing participants from diverse backgrounds with an understanding of the problems, opportunities, and issues facing the community.
Over the last 10 months, participants heard presentations from various elected officials (including Secretary of State Cord Byrd, Congressman John Rutherford, Senator Aaron Bean, and Circuit Judge James Daniel, as well as local constitutional officers), business and community leaders (including Deputy Secretary Laura DiBella, Brian Flick with The Compass Group, Lisa Finkelstein with Fernandina Beach Main Street, Mark and Donna Kaufman of Story & Song Bookstore Bistro, and Shawn DeRome with Rayonier), and had exclusive access to behind-the-scenes tours of local and regional organizations that are usually closed to the public (including WestRock, the Jacksonville International Airport, Jacksonville Port Authority, Nassau County Jail, the City of Fernandina Beach Water Treatment facilities, and TIAA Bank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars).
