The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Leadership Fort Dodge program. This year will mark the 10th year of Leadership Fort Dodge and will be celebrated in part with a visit from Leadership Iowa in November. Leadership Fort Dodge meets one day each month for nine months, beginning in September and concluding in May. Each month’s topic is different and the program is designed to educate Fort Dodge and Webster County’s emerging leaders in areas such as economic development, agriculture, workforce, healthcare, recreation, finance, education, and government. The program consists of speakers and tours with each session being very interactive and participant driven.
Application forms are available at the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, 1406 Central Avenue and can be accessed on-line at http://www.greaterfortdodge.com/images/Leadership_Fort_Dodge_Application.pdf. Participation cost is $300. Questions can be directed to Community Development Director Todd Redenius at 955.5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for sign-up is August 16.
