The Wisdom Project, a senior leadership program and part of the VISION 2030 Initiative developed and presented by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce and Brenau University’s Center for Lifetime Study, recently graduated it’s spring 2013 session. The 16 participants held discussions with community leaders, explored local industries and organizations through on-site visits, learned about area challenges and opportunities and discovered new ways to engage with the community. The Wisdom Project is designed for members of the community age 55 and up to encourage retired and semi-retired individuals to use their wisdom and talents in creative ways for action and advocacy.
