The Sheboygan County Chamber will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary with its next class for 2013-2014 in conjunction with the Chamber’s 100th Year Anniversary.
Chambers across the country have Leadership Institute programs that provide an opportunity to learn about what a community has to offer and give people the insight to what only a few may see.
“The Leadership Institute of Sheboygan County allowed me to form wonderful relationships with other business professionals. It has shown me so many things I wasn’t aware of in the County I have lived most of my life. I have learned that all situations can relate back in some form to my current leadership role,” Keli Wimberly, a current participant, said.
The program continues to deliver as it did in the beginning. This quote from the Sheboygan Press in 1989 says it well. “The Leadership Institute was initiated in 1988 by the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce to develop community leaders through issue analysis and skill development. Participants devoted one full day each month, September [now begins in August] through May, to sessions designed to provide leadership skills training, background on the way Sheboygan County ‘runs,’ and an opportunity to explore pivotal community issues with local and state leaders and experts.”
Applications to be part of the 25th Anniversary class are now being accepted. See below for more info.
If you have an employee or you are a leader-in-training yourself, view the above brochure & application links or contact Lisa Hartman at Lisa@sheboygan.org. Tuition for this action-packed 80-hour Leadership Institute experience is $850. Thanks to a partnership with the Sheboygan Area United Way, limited scholarships are available to small non-profit organizations. Deadline for 2013-2014 Leadership Class is June 28, 2013.

Every organization has those people who show great promise, from the smallest to the largest companies. For those leaders-in-training and even for those who have already made it to the top, the Sheboygan County Chamber Leadership Program is a must.
For ten days (one each month from August to May), each class gathers for a carefully programmed day of immersion in all-things Sheboygan County. A day of discussions with government leaders, tours of educational facilities, time in the county jail (!), and a quick look at a variety of county attractions and historical sites. It’s all in a day’s work for these rising stars…and it all starts in August with an intensive team building day with a unique twist.
