Apply for Leadership Green Bay


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:

  1. Select individuals with passion for leadership within their own organization and in the community.
  2. Select individuals committed to their personal/professional development.
  3. Select individuals with a sincere commitment, motivation and interest to serve in the community.
  4. Select individuals intending to seek public office, boards, commissions, or key volunteer leadership roles.
