Leadership Menomonie Application 2021-2022

There are necessary precautions being put in place for COVID-19 and a formal preparedness plan will be provided to class participants and their employers. Leadership Menomonie strives to ensure continuation of the area's quality of life by providing a forum to develop and motivate future leaders. Leadership Menomonie, a community-based leadership program, is here to help you grow as a leader and engage in our community.
These professionals gather monthly to learn about our accolades as a community and the challenges we are facing.

Each monthly gathering focuses on a different community segment; from human services to arts and the economy, participants are immersed in a half-day or full-day virtual or traveling class that includes guest speakers, hands-on experiences, tours and relationship building. The goal of each class day is to challenge thinking and inspire you to get involved in your community.

At the start of this program, participants are placed into small groups and are charged with the task of identifying an issue or program that needs attention. These groups then plan and execute sustainable community projects.
