RLI Chesterfield County

RLI- Chesterfield County was formed in August 2012, after a group of Chesterfield County residents completed the Rural Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University. Through this training at Francis Marion University, the participants learned how to develop a sustainable project and program which will benefit their rural community. The curriculum of RLI emphasizes on organizational management, budgeting and finance, problem solving, intergovernmental relations, and other topics specifically tailored to the needs of rural communities.
