The program is designed to last for nine months beginning with a breakfast in August and an overnight retreat in September. A variety of topics will be discussed in seven one-day monthly sessions, concluding with a one-day retreat in April. The one-day sessions will feature experts from diverse fields. Topics to be covered include Military, Government, Human Needs & Health Services, Economic Structure of the Coast, Culture & Heritage, Education, and Quality Of Life.
The tuition fee is $1,325.00 for member of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce, Inc. or $1,500.00 for potential members. As part of the learning process, participants are expected to secure their own funding. It is anticipated, however, that sponsors, employers or other involved organizations may be willing to help with this deductible expense.
