Leadership

Leadership Mainland is an opportunity to experience leadership development, community awareness and personal growth.

The class is composed of no more than 20 individuals and is chaired by former graduates of Leadership Mainland. Applications are submitted and upon enrollment, the $850.00 enrollment fee entitles the participants to local and out of town transportation, meals (15) lodging for the weekend retreat and the Austin trip and graduation plaque. A minimum attendance requirement of 80% is necessary to successfully complete Leadership Mainland.  With the exception of the initial weekend retreat and the Austin trip, the class will meet one day per month and get an in-depth background into our community, county and state.

A team building weekend is the initial class meeting and is a required activity for each class member.  This casual weekend will include speakers, team building activities, leadership training and will enable the class to become acquainted.  For more information to attend the informational meeting call   409-935-1408.
