Eighteen leaders bettered themselves last week as the Leadership Atmore Class of 2017 went on an annual opening retreat at Camp Beckwith in Fairhope.
The class spent the day last Wednesday going through the camp’s ropes course and lower elements to help build leadership and team skills, and get to know each other.
Leadership Atmore began in 1993 by the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce as a way of identifying leaders and providing a base of knowledge about the Atmore community. At present, more than 400 participants have graduated from LA.
