We are excited to offer and pilot a leadership cohort in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality. The curriculum for this cohort was designed in partnership with a regional Local Government Services advisory group with a mission and vision for maximizing resources for government agencies and others serving our communities. This program is a nine-month engaging and dynamic leadership program designed to help cohort participants:

  • Strengthen leadership knowledge and skills for personal and professional leadership effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Gain awareness and strategies for building effective teams and inclusive environments at work and with the public.
  • Build a knowledgeable and robust network of public leaders across the region.

Tuition for the entire program is $1,500 for Resource members, $1,800 for non-members. Fee includes all cohort education, related materials, and meals for in-person sessions. Member discount will be applied upon checkout.
