Leadership Fremont County was founded in 2003 by representatives from Riverton, Lander, Dubois, and the Wind River Indian Reservation. These community leaders developed a course that would gather current and future leaders in the Fremont County. These leaders learn to expand and actively engage their leadership skills. Over a period of 9 months, participants work on leadership skills, decision-making, strategic planning, and coalition-building. They also discuss and learn about area history, economic development, social-economic issues, tourism, education, and tribal history and relations.
The ultimate learning objectives for the Leadership Fremont County program are as follows:
- Understand industry leaders for public, private, and non profit sectors in our local economy.
- Enhance networking skills and develop relationship within the community.
- Identify, define, development and demonstrate leadership skills.
- Understand emergent issues, identify opportunities, and purse solutions.
