The University of Wisconsin-Extension and the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce are now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 class of the Leadership Oneida County program.
Leadership Oneida County is a nine-month program that cultivates and prepares leaders within Oneida County. By completing the program, candidates will obtain an enhanced awareness of services and organizations within Oneida County, and will have a reinvigorated sense of civic responsibility and involvement.
Leadership Oneida County will inform community leaders of local resources and will foster relationships and self-awareness of the candidate’s leadership potential. Program activities will include touring Oneida County businesses, meeting with community leaders and completing a community project.
The program will kick off Sept. 24-25 with an overnight retreat at Treehaven Environmental Learning Center. Leadership Oneida County will then meet each month for day-long sessions beginning in October and conclude with the graduation ceremony in May. Each monthly session will focus on a specific area within the county, including business, industry, medical, education, government and community services.
The program fee is $350 per participant and will cover all fees including the overnight retreat, lunches for each monthly session and program materials. Program days will be held on the third Thursday of each month from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
