Leadership Maury

Leadership Maury is a countywide personal development program designed to motivate participants to develop and enhance the quality of their leadership in addressing pertinent community needs. The program is open to people who live, work, or make a significant contribution to Maury County through volunteer work. Class members meet with local decision-makers in several sectors of the community, such as business, government, health, public services and agriculture. Participants will visit places all over the county to hear speakers and participate in activities to help them learn about Maury County and how to positively impact where they live, learn, work and play.

The purpose of the Leadership Maury program is TO:
  • Help leaders prepare for volunteer responsibility in the community.
  • Provide these leaders with a practical and sophisticated understanding of major problems and opportunities facing Maury County.
  • Facilitate access between emerging leaders and the current leadership of the community.
  • Improve the communications network among leaders with diverse backgrounds and interests.
  • Create a setting for persons of demonstrated commitment to the community to meet and exchange ideas.
  • Stimulate increased community participation and commitment.


Leadership Maury participants are selected on their own merits through an application process conducted by the program’s selection committee, with final approval by the Leadership Maury Board of Trustees. No applicant is automatically accepted into the class and all applicants are subject to the same review process.

  • Applicants must live or work/volunteer in Maury County or the city limits of Spring Hill.
  • Applicants must have at least 2 years of full-time work experience.
  • Have demonstrated a desire to serve the community through past or present activities.
  • Motivated and willing to serve Maury County through leadership roles such as public/private boards, volunteer organizations, and public office
  • Possess potential or existing opportunities for leadership roles within their organizations, which may in turn play a significant role in their community.
  • Will commit to attend all Leadership Maury program sessions and continue to serve at least one year past graduation as a resource person, program planner or other roles as needed.

The Leadership Maury Selection Committee makes a diligent effort to select participants who represent the diversity of the community. This generates much of the meaningful personal interaction and learning in the program. Class size is limited. Applications must be received by the July 15th deadline.
