Leadership White County (LWC) 2019-2020 will kick-off on September 18, 2019 with eight sessions planned as part of the curriculum.  “Registration deadline for the 2019-2020 class is July 14, 2019” said Debbie Conover, LWC Chairman.   “We will be accepting the first 20 applicants for this new session.  Because we have changed to monthly sessions, please note the July deadline for applications to be turned in!”

“This year, instead of meeting weekly, we are excited to announce that LWC will run on the third Wednesday of each month September through April from 9am to 3pm.,” said Debbie Conover.  “We will kick-off this session with a full day retreat at Camp Tecumseh for our meet and greet orientation. This session will be full of networking and ice breaker activities.”

“The next six sessions will be designed to develop leadership capacity by providing a curriculum that includes both personal and community leadership development topics; present information about the county; increase involvement in government and civic organizations; influence positive change in the county through enhanced leadership; and build a spirit of unity throughout White County.  Sessions will be taught by state, county and community leaders and specialists,” concluded Debbie Conover.

The cost for Leadership White County is $250.00, and the fee is due by the first session on September 18, 2019.  Participants may be sponsored by their employer or a non-profit organization.  Employer Consent Forms are part of the application process.  Applications are available at the White County Economic Development office, located at 124 N. Main Street, Suite A. in downtown Monticello. 

To date, there are 160 Leadership White County graduates serving in public offices, on non-profit boards, and as volunteers in their communities.  “We invite you to join their ranks and become a stronger, informed and more engaged leader,” said Debbie Conover.
