Our Roots.


What we do.

Leadership Grundy is a program focused on "intentional development". Individuals with the qualities and demonstration of leadership may apply to be in the upcoming Leadership Class each summer. Accepted applicants must attending all retreats & ceremonies, commit one working day per month between September and May to attend leadership development Program Days, and the Leadership Class must fully plan, organize, and complete a community service project prior to graduation. 

Program Day topics vary from year to year, but always remain relevant to what's going on in our county. Examples of topics include economic development, media & communications, local education, state and local government, tourism, emergency awareness, and more. Leadership Grundy also strives to connect participants with leaders and leadership educators from across our state by inviting guest speakers to some of our annual events, such as the opening retreat.

Why we do it.

It's simple. We do it because we love this area and the people in it.
