(Fremont County, Wyo.) – Leadership Fremont County’s class of 2014-15 is now seeking applicants for its series of nine sessions over a nine month-period across the county. The programs cover such skills as leadership, decision making, strategic planning and coalition building. Topics to be covered include area history, economic development, social-economic factors, tourism and marketing, education, plus Tribal history and relations.
Through this program, the participants will have an opportunity to become more aware of the dynamics of social and economic changes that impact Fremont County and the partnerships and resources that are available to deal with those changes.
The purpose of Leadership Fremont County is to introduce established and prospective leaders to the great community of Fremont County, identify individuals who have displayed a strong tendency toward civic involvement, and assist them in developing their potential to become community leaders.
A candidate may apply or be nominated by an employer or other interested party. More information and an application may be obtained by visiting the Leadership Fremont County website by clicking here.
The 2014-15 class begins on September 11th and concludes with graduation in June 2015.
