Leadership program ready for 2019-20 applicants

The Steering Committee for Leadership Oconto County (LOC) announces that its 2018-2019 program is ready to receive applications.

Similar to programs in neighboring Shawano and Brown counties, LOC consists of nine all-day sessions meeting monthly September thru May.

Each day’s events, meeting around the county, will focus on one or more topics including personality assessment, public speaking, health and wellness, education, economic development, local and state government, diversity in county population, natural resources, tourism, and community engagement. Participants will complete a group project that addresses a community need.

Businesses and organizations are encouraged to sponsor an individual at a cost of $600 per person which covers all expenses (registration, materials, meals and bus transportation). A limited number of scholarships are available.

Applications are available at www.co.oconto.wi.us under Economic Development, on Facebook at Leadership Oconto County, or by calling the Oconto County Economic Development Corp. office at 920-834-6969.
