Explore leadership styles.

Create your leadership philosophy.

Discuss emerging community topics.

Leadership Bartholomew County class sessions for 2017-2018 will begin in September 2017! 

The 2017-2018 class sessions will include exploration of leadership styles and the creation of an individual leadership philosophy as well as in-depth discussion of emerging community topics such as civic leadership, public-private partnerships, and economic development. Class participants will also take part in a community plunge day providing the opportunity to visit non-profit agencies and meet with agency clients.

Amber Fischvogt will facilitate the class. Amber will use her education in business management and leadership to provide insight into various leadership topics and act as a catalyst for discussion and understanding of community topics presented during each session.

The 2017-2018 program will run from September through April, with a class session meeting once per month on Tuesdays. The sessions in September, January, and April begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. The other five classes will begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at noon. The September and January classes include lunch, and the April session will include a luncheon and graduation program.

Graduation Policy

Leadership Bartholomew County’s policy is that class members who miss two or more sessions will not be able to graduate that same year.  LBC has selected the focus of each session in an attempt to cover the most prominent issues in the community.  Because class members learn about those issues by participating in discussions with each other at the sessions, frequent absences damage the quality of the program and cannot be accepted.  A class member who misses two or more sessions will be allowed to graduate the following year by attending those sessions that most closely correspond to the sessions they missed.
