Who are our Alumni?
Since 1990 over 500 people have participated in Leadership Barry County. It provides participants the opportunity to gain, expand, or hone their leadership skills. We learn about communication, change management, local government, civil debates, tours of Barry County and our state Capitol building. Networking is also a large part of Leadership Barry County. Many friendships are formed between lifelong friends.
Participants come from many sectors, hold various positions in the companies they represent and are from all areas of Barry County. The first thing we do it get to know one another at our retreat through team building activities. We learn our Real Color and then learn to better communicate with others.
Barry County High School students are also invited to participate in Leadership Barry County as well and are able to gain experience before many of their peers. A student that has participated in Leadership Barry County and is a member of the Youth Advisory Council is able to then hold a full voting position on the board of directors.
Each year participants are asked to provide feedback on the program so that we can make positive changes to the program. Each participant brings a fresh perspective to Leadership Barry County.
Thank you for your continued support of Leadership Barry County!
