Leadership Washburn County Now Taking Applications For 2023-2024 Program 

SPOONER, WI -- Leadership Washburn County is now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 program. Deadline to apply is August 11, 2023.

What is Leadership Washburn County?

The program began in 2008 with the purpose of developing current and future leaders in our community by offering a high-quality training program emphasizing leadership skills and focusing on current issues facing our region.

"Leadership Washburn County really helped me connect and network with more professionals from all around the county. We learned so much about ourselves and each other during the program, in fact, many of us still keep up with each other. From ways of understanding how we can play to our strengths as leaders through learning more about the type of personality we have, to how to recognize how to most effectively show appreciation to our coworkers through learning about the different appreciation languages, Leadership Washburn County taught us so many ways build up and foster our leadership skills while also teaching us more about Washburn County and all the resources we have available to us here." -- Lauren Hartwig, Executive Director Spooner Area Chamber of Commerce, LWC Class of 2023

What does the program entail?

Program participants meet once a month from October to May to learn leadership skill development and issues facing the region.
