About the Program

Leadership Fond du Lac is a community-based program that provides information and experience to individuals willing to make a lasting commitment of service to the city and county of Fond du Lac.

Mission: to assist in the preparation of a strong, diverse group of leaders qualified to represent our communities and willing to make responsible decisions affecting both the public and private sectors.

Qualified applicants begin the nine-month program in September with a two-day retreat. Right away, the class starts on team building skills, and discusses how they can have an impact on the community through their group project. The class meets once a month to learn more about the community, its unique challenges and strengths, through presentations, role playing, tours and other activities. Classes prepare the leaders to fill roles that will contribute to a healthier, more vital community for many years to come.

Leadership Fond du Lac participants are a diverse group of individuals from all sectors of the business community, with big titles or no title at all. They share one thing in common: a desire and willingness to commit to serving their community and a dedication to the power of teamwork.
