Participants meet one day per month, October through May, following an overnight opening retreat in September. The program focuses on the Greater Green Bay area's economy, education, history and heritage, inclusive awareness, human services, government and environment. In addition, small groups work on projects designed to enhance awareness of community challenges, identify systems and methods to affect change, and develop project management, team and presentation skills. The small groups meet on their own time outside of the Leadership Green Bay sessions.
The most important factor in selection is identifying those individuals most apt to utilize their leadership for the long-term benefit of the community and their organizations. We strive to select a cross-section of participants from all sectors of the community. The basic criteria for achieving the selection are:
In addition to the opening retreat and the closing dinner, the time commitment is eight full-day sessions. Attendance at the two-day overnight opening retreat, closing and at all sessions is required. If you miss a session, you may be subject to review by the Leadership Green Bay steering committee as to your eligibility for graduation from the program.
Leadership Green Bay will assess a $500 administrative fee for anyone who withdraws from the program after acceptance into the program and prior to Sept. 1. On or After Sept. 1, full tuition is non-refundable.
In addition to the sessions, you will be asked to commit your time to a small group community project. The amount of time you will need to devote to the development of your project will be determined by consensus of your small group. Participation in the small group meetings is expected.
