The La Crosse Area Community Leadership Program is unlike any other leadership program you have experienced and is guaranteed to provide greater insight and value into the community in which you live. As a member of the 2020-21 La Crosse Area Community Leadership class, you will:
Gain an understanding of Greater La Crosse and the complex interplay of different components of our area, including: the rivers, bluffs, and Driftless Region; civil service and public office; our courts and justice system; public health, including mental health; economic development and talent attraction; the arts; diversity, and more.
Get hands-on experience with local volunteering, as you work in small groups to assist an organization with a community service project.
Grow your cross-industry network of local leaders, and meet new people throughout our community
Be challenged to take an active leadership role in your community and your business, in a way that fits you best.
This leadership program is fantastic for those new to the La Crosse Area as well as those who have called this region home for years. Participants will develop their leadership skills and gain a new perspective to enhance their roles in the workplace, on non-profit boards, at home, as a volunteer, and as a community member.
Meeting Frequency: The group meets monthly, from October 20, 2020 to May 18, 2021 for a half-day session from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Facilitator: La Crosse Area Community Leadership Program is facilitated by Tom Thibodeau, Distinguished Professor of Servant Leadership and graduate faculty member at Viterbo University. Tom is well-recognized locally and nationally for his work in servant leadership.
