Leadership Green Bay — The program that keeps on giving

T

here’s a well-known saying by John Maxwell that says, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” That quote particularly resonates with me when I think about Leadership Green Bay, the Chamber’s community-based leadership program. In many ways, Leadership Green Bay was a forerunner of servant leadership.

Leadership Green Bay’s mission statement is “inspiring leaders to enrich our community.” The program does this through a unique leadership experience that differentiates itself from other leadership training or coaching or development in a few distinct ways. Just one of these is that it’s experiential.The leadership in the name of the program is not just a title. Instead, the 42 participants selected for each year’s class agree to find and own a small group project that addresses a community need or problem. As of 2015’s class, our 1,110 program graduates have completed more than 140 projects that produced an estimated $2.3 million impact on the Greater Green Bay community. And the way that each of these projects came to being originates with the class attending monthly sessions focused on different aspects of the community, from Human Services Day to Education Day, Government Day to Inclusive Leadership Day. It’s amazing how those session days open eyes and give both people who have lived here their entire lives as well as transplants a fresh and in-depth perspective. That’s because it’s upfront and personal; because of the commitment class members make to the class, they devote an entire day once a month, for nine months, to experiencing the community in a focused and frank way they may never have had the opportunity to do before.What they learn is not merely factual, but also tugs on heart strings and helps them realize what their passion is and where

they — and their company — can make a difference. Most importantly, the sessions and associated homework and activities not only move people, but move them to ACT. As I mentioned at the beginning of this column, caring is at the core of Leadership Green Bay. The program has — since its inception — encouraged each class member to self-reflect.That includes something many of us as leaders are not always quick to do, as it requires us to accept a level of vulnerability. But it’s that willingness to be vulnerable with fellow class members —through different exercises that reveal that we are all more alike than we are different — that class members not only form a deep bond that lasts for a lifetime, but lead with their hearts in the community. In doing so, Leadership Green Bay graduates are able to connect to community causes in a very personal way, and one that is the polar opposite of a course that’s rooted in the theory of leadership. In being willing to be vulnerable, class members exhibit a special level of strength that also enables them to grow as individuals and become part of a greater whole — Leadership Green Bay alumni. That became particularly evident to me when I attended the recent Legacy of Leadership event, which showcased some of the earliest classes of Leadership Green Bay. Each class brings together a group of people who are strangers in the beginning but who come together with a shared purpose and, in the process, develop lifelong

relationships. These are relationships that benefit not only the community at large, but the business community as well. After partaking in personality assessments, class members are purposely assembled into small groups for their projects that provide the greatest diversity and variety of personalities. In this setting, class members learn leadership skills, project management skills and how to work with people not only with diverse personalities, but from diverse industries and backgrounds. Class members return to their workplaces with a new respect and depth of vestment in volunteerism, as well as a new level of interpersonal skills, perspectives and methods they can immediately implement in the workplace to the benefit of their entire teams. I like to say that there might be a defined start to the Leadership Green Bay programming when class members attend the retreat that kicks off each program year in September. But there is no finish. As a graduate of the Leadership Green Bay class of 2003, I can speak to the fact that class graduates have an ongoing and “collective impact” on both personal and professional levels. To all our Leadership Green Bay graduates, volunteers, supporting businesses and sponsors, thank you!

— Laurie Radke

President, Greater Green Bay Chamber


THE OF LEADERSHIP GREEN BAY In a 1982 survey of community leaders, the Chamber asked respondents to comment on leadership development within the Greater Green Bay area. These people expressed a feeling that there was a lack of interest in leadership among potential leaders, or at least reluctance among new people to assume leadership roles. The Chamber’s board of directors addressed this issue twice during 1983; at a planning conference and again during its accreditation process. Out of this came a recommendation to develop a formalized training program, which came to be called Leadership Green Bay. The purpose of the program was to: Identify and develop potential leaders Acquaint those leaders with community needs and problems Offer alternatives for addressing those needs and problems Prepare and challenge them to become involved Leaders from a variety of sectors within the community formed three committees (totaling 23 members) and went to work developing the curriculum, recruiting and selecting participants and developing a plan to market graduates. The program accomplished its goals by identifying and selecting 29 participants for its first class from diverse backgrounds and holding a series of nine informative one- and two-day seminars.

LEADERSHIP GREEN BAY Committees

APRIL SMITH Chair, Leadership Green Bay Alumni Committee Ansay & Associates LLC

ALUMNI COMMITTEE

T

he Alumni Committee for Leadership Green Bay was created to engage and support alumni, maintain a database of all graduates of the program, plan events and lead the fundraising efforts of the Leadership Green Bay program. Since 1985, Leadership Green Bay has graduated over 1,100 participants of the program. From these participants, there are numerous projects that the Greater Green Bay area has benefitted from. This committee is responsible for reviewing future applicants to the program, participating in interviews with the project teams from each class and maintaining and creating awareness of the Leo Frigo and John M. and Meredith B. Rose awards. Our signature fundraising event for the program is called Legacy of Leadership. We are now in our second year of this event.

Leo Frigo Award

This award is the program’s highest achievement. It is awarded to an individual who has been nominated by their peers for their 4  Collective IMPACT | Spring 2016

significant and continual contributions to the Leadership Green Bay program as well as the Greater Green Bay community. They are an advocate and model of community leadership. Prior recipients of this award have included Michael Moore (2015) and Gregg Bushner (2014).

John M. & Meredith B. Rose Award

The award recipient is a business whose leadership and strong community giving is over and above expectations. This award is meant to build community awareness of the importance of building a network of leaders within our community. The recipient of this award shares these values and makes a difference, just as the namesake of this award has done. Both John and Meredith Rose have been known for their remarkable commitment to leadership and community giving, both professionally and personally. Prior recipients of this award have included Hager, Dewick and Zuengler S.C. (2015) and University of Wisconsin – Green Bay (2014).

Legacy of Leadership

This event was developed to be a fundraising event that brings together alumni, prospective

candidates of the program, friends and family of the graduates as well as the employers and nonprofits the graduates represent. It is a time to celebrate and promote our program’s success and encourage continual involvement in Leadership Green Bay. Each year, we select a class to honor at the event. During our inaugural year of this event, 2015, we chose to honor the very first class of 1985. Classmates of this year connected with old and new graduates and shared their experiences through their Leadership Green Bay journey. It is during this event that we announce the winners of the Leo Frigo and John M. and Meredith B. Rose award winners. Fundraising is an important part of any nonprofit program. All of the money raised from applications, ticket sales, silent auction items and sponsorships are put back into the programming for Leadership Green Bay. If you are interested in donating or sponsoring our Legacy of Leadership or becoming one of our sponsors for the overall Leadership Green Bay program, please contact Sue Zittlow at 920.593.3412.


CURRICULUM COMMITTEE

T

he Leadership Green Bay Curriculum Committee is largely considered the engine behind the program. We work year-round to establish new, exciting, relevant and thought-provoking content for each session day – History Day, Human Services Day, Education Day, Economic Development Day, Government Day, Inclusive Leadership Day and Environment Day. In addition, the Curriculum Committee works to plan the Opening Retreat and Closing Day/Ceremony. Each session day is the product of many hours of planning by subcommittees (typically consisting of three to five members) that are established for the purpose of creating the best experience for the class possible. Subcommittees retain speakers, create interactive activities, compile panels of experts and arrange site visits for the class members. Each subcommittee begins with creating a framework for its session day and reports back to the entire curriculum committee for feedback on what can be done to improve or expand upon the proposed session day. The at-large committee focuses its efforts on framing the course content around “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” from The Leadership Challenge, by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, which is loosely considered the “textbook” for Leadership Green Bay. Class members are given a copy of The Leadership Challenge early in the year and asked to focus their experience on “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” which are identified as:

Model the Way

Encourage leaders to behave the same way they encourage others to behave, with their own voice and values.

Inspire a Shared Vision

Focus on developing a vision and series of goals that everyone at the organization cares about and works toward collectively, with clear understanding.

Challenge the Process

Encourage moving “outside the boundaries” to be innovative to make change.

Enable Others to Act

Encourage leaders to create a safe and trusting environment for people to collaborate, experiment, and engage.

Encourage the Heart

Focus on being sincere, including sincere celebrations devoted to recognizing employee successes. In developing the curriculum, committee members are encouraged to call out specific examples of the above practices, and provide an avenue of learning for the class that allows the class to see or experience how “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” are already in practice in our community. The Curriculum Committee attempts to bring thought-provoking material before the class members to help elicit the best form of leader from within each class member. The Curriculum Committee is essentially challenged with taking 40-plus professionals from all different walks in their leadership journey and finding something each day that will ignite a new fire or deeper understanding of who they are as a leader or how their style of leadership impacts their business or community. Without question, each person is slightly different, which forces the Curriculum Committee to attempt to diversify the content of each day as much as possible. The committee itself is composed of approximately 20 members, most of whom are alumni of the program.The committee meets the third Wednesday of each month at the Greater Green Bay Chamber building.

STEERING COMMITTEE

T

he purpose of the Leadership Green Bay Steering Committee is to ensure the quality, vitality and continuing development of the Leadership Green Bay program. The committee works together with the Greater Green Bay Chamber to determine the vision and operational model for the Leadership Green Bay program. Past chairs of other Leadership Green Bay committees generally fill vice chair, chair, and past chair positions. To encourage sustainability within the program, there is a three year term where a member begins as vice chair, moves to chair position in year two and then to past chair in year three. Each year the Steering Committee chooses strategic goals and then works with each of the three committees (Curriculum, Marketing and Membership, and Alumni) to determine an operational plan for executing the strategies.The Steering Committee meets monthly to discuss program effectiveness, program

6  Collective IMPACT | Spring 2016

structure, sponsorship and fundraising, effective partnering with Chamber resources and solutions to any operational challenges within the program. For the 2016 program year, the Steering Committee is actively working on re-establishing an Alumni Committee, a sustainable database strategy to maintain contact with graduates of the program, evaluating the opening retreat structure, creating sustainable documentation for each committee and session day and revisiting the structure of the Steering Committee itself.The Leadership Green Bay program has a dual purpose in that it aspires to develop leadership skills and promote community leadership. This causes a lot of healthy debate about curriculum content at the various session days and the focus of various events such as the annual Welcome Breakfast, Legacy of Leadership event and graduation event. The Steering Committee gets involved with each class of Leadership Green Bay participants by participating in the facilitation of

the two-day opening retreat in September, facilitating a mid-year project review event where project teams are required to present the concept and approach for executing their group project and participating in the Welcome Breakfast and graduation events. The Steering Committee also has the responsibility to assemble an external advisory panel. The purpose of the advisory panel is to provide a forum to gather an external voice on the direction and content of the Leadership Green Bay program. The advisory panel is appointed by the Steering Committee annually and is composed of no less than three community leaders with extensive experience with competencies such as leadership training, curriculum and community engagement. The Leadership Green Bay program is continually evolving and growing to meet the demands of our participants, and the Steering Committee is ultimately responsible for making sure all aspects of the program are on par.


MEMBERSHIP AND MARKETING COMMITTEE

T

he responsibility of the Leadership Green Bay Membership and Marketing Committee is to promote the program and recruit and select the next class. The committee is composed of alumni that have a strong passion to promote, grow the program and showcase the impacts Leadership Green Bay is having on the Greater Green Bay community. The committee is currently led by Eric Craver, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay.

The Membership and Marketing Committee works closely with the other Leadership Green Bay committees to understand their marketing needs, get feedback from alumni and identify opportunities to continue to promote the Leadership Green Bay program. Committee members work closely with Steve Levin, the Chamber’s director of marketing and communications, to define and execute plans supporting the needs of the program.

ERIC CRAVER, Chair, Leadership Green Bay Membership and Marketing Committee UWGB

Class recruitment and getting business support is the main focus for the committee.They work closely with Sue Zittlow, Chamber director of workforce development, to maintain the applications, define class selection criteria and recruit applicants through working with alumni and other sources. After the application period, the committee then facilitates a daylong selection meeting. The selection meeting includes committee chairs and the program director to review each application and select the class.

There’s no business like small business. Small business owners and their employees need coverage that meets their needs. With one of the largest hospital and doctor networks in the state of Wisconsin, we’re committed to supporting companies of every size with access to affordable care that meets their needs — whenever and wherever they need it.

BY JENNIFER HOGELAND

eadership Green Bay founders believed the more individuals knew about Greater Green Bay — and the more they got involved — the more likely they were to stay in the community.

“Giving people a program to not only learn about individuals and organizations in the community but the opportunity to really give back presents a whole new level of leadership,” says Sue Zittlow, director of workforce development at the Greater Green Bay Chamber. “Leadership Green Bay focuses on servant leadership — how to get participants involved and how they can make the community great.”

❝ 2016 SESSION DAYS The Leadership Green Bay program always kicks off with a two-day overnight retreat. “There is a lot of team building happening at the retreat. It is also time for individuals to learn about themselves and to reflect on what their goals are for this journey,” adds Zittlow. The seven session days currently include History and Heritage, Human Services, Education, Economic and Community Development, Government, Inclusive Leadership and Environment. Zittlow reveals Education Day made a lasting impact on the Leadership Green Bay class this year. “Many of the class members are now volunteering in the schools they toured,” she says. Economic and Community Development Day featured a panel of economic development experts who offered a glimpse into what’s up and coming.“By seeing things behind the scenes, hearing the plans for the future and understanding the vision of community leaders, you find yourself thinking differently about Greater Green Bay,” says Zittlow. April’s Environment Day included a panel of professionals from area businesses who are focused on being environmentally friendly and what that means for their organization. Broadway Automotive came in to discuss hybrid cars and the autos’ impact on the environment before transporting the class to their afternoon tours.

The session day topics address areas that people need to know to really understand what makes our community work and operate. — Sue Zittlow, director of workforce development, Greater Green Bay Chamber

SESSION DAYS REMAIN CURRENT There are two main components of the Leadership Green Bay program: session days and a small group project.The session day concept was part of the initial program, although topics and session names have changed over time. “The session day topics address areas that people need to know to really understand what makes our community work and operate,” adds Zittlow. “The Curriculum Committee and Steering Committee have conversations all the time if these are the right days and the right topics.We have made some changes to the names.The goal statements and outcomes for each of the days have also changed slightly based on what is happening in the community or what is needed.” The Curriculum Committee subgroups drive the content and activities for the session days. They set the agenda and secure the speakers. The Greater Green Bay Chamber is in charge of the location and social at the end of the day. “In some cases we have panel discussions, and in others we might do tours. Sometimes we’ll have in-depth discussions and reflections,” says Zittlow. “Every session is a little different, but they are always very full days. The social at the end of the day gives you time to process what just transpired.” The socials are also an opportunity to connect with Leadership Green Bay class members, alumni and business leaders.

STAGE AT WHITNEY PARK Leadership Green Bay Team 1 has plans to help revive the downtown Green Bay area.Whitney Park, located off Main Street, allows lots of green space for many people in the surrounding area. “There has been lots of talk regarding bringing the downtown area back to life, and we all thought that this would be a great way to really kick things off,” says Katie Hess. Team 1 is planning to construct a covered stage in the center of Whitney Park. It will be open to the public, as well as accommodate summer performances that are hosted there yearly. The team hopes that it’ll be

able to add sound and lighting into the stage sometime in the future. “We have really high hopes for the area. This has been a great project to put things into motion,” says Hess.The team chose this project because of their strong belief in restoring the downtown area, and preserving the events that they host there already. They also believe that it’s a great place for young people to go for fun and entertainment locally. They look forward to seeing all the other things that can and will be added to the park and surrounding area in the future, and are very glad to be a part of getting things started.

NATURAL PLAYGROUND AT ENCOMPASS EARLY EDUCATION AND CARE CENTER IN DE PERE

Members of Leadership Green Bay Team 2 are servicing the community through a new nature-centered playground. It will be located at Encompass Early Education and DayCare in De Pere. Team 2 created the plan with youth in mind, and all the ways that they could keep children active and outdoors.They also wanted to take on a project that they knew would have an impact on the community.

The playground will include an outdoor kitchen and music wall, a bridge over a water source leading to a sandbox, a raised garden and trellis, a large tree configuration for climbing and even a butterfly garden. Encompass, a nonprofit organization, serves over 100 children every day, and with this new play area, it will be ensured that the children will get lots of outdoor playtime.The play area will be open to those who are enrolled in the early care and education programs at Encompass.

MARKETING PLAN REGARDING AWARENESS AND RECRUITMENT OF FOSTER PARENT OPPORTUNITIES IN BROWN COUNTY

Leadership Green Bay Team 3’s project is launching an ad campaign regarding the need for foster parents in the Brown County area. The team identified a need surrounding foster care in the area.“We really wanted to help an already existing program, and make that one better rather than starting a whole new one,” says Andria Hannula.“The foster care program was just something we all could really get behind, and found ourselves to be super passionate about.” There has been a shortage of foster parents for the children of Brown County in recent years, and Team 3 is set on changing that. The group’s ad campaign will target potential foster parents through multiple media outlets. They plan to make videos and do press releases that the public will view. This will raise awareness to the shortage of parents, and get more people interested in the ways they can help. Team 3 is partnering with Brown County Human Services and the Division of Child and Family Services to help gain support in the community, and help network.

WATER SOURCE, EDUCATIONAL AREAS, WATER FOUNTAIN AND PARK BENCHES AT NAVARINO PARK

Leadership Green Bay Team 4 is planning to help revamp the Navarino Park in East Green Bay.The team decided that youth was at the top of the list of priorities when they were choosing their project, and ideally they wanted to help kids stay healthy and active.

With the area around the park highly populated, there is little green space. Many people don’t even have yards and rely on the park as a place for their children to play in the summertime.There are many educational and fun events the park hosts, and it’s essential they have the best area possible. Upon becoming a focal point of the community, the team thinks it’s important for the park to offer educational areas for children and a water source for the summers. They plan to construct space specifically for future gardening purposes, a reading area for the children, as some schools use the area in summer for reading courses and an educational play area. They have received financial support from Prevea, Denmark State Bank, PAi, Schenk and Prevea 360 Health Plan.

MOBILE UNIT TO SHOWCASE SAFETY PRODUCTS AND COMMON UNSAFE PRACTICES TO WHICH CHILDREN ARE EXPOSED IN THE HOME FOR THE CENTER FOR CHILDHOOD SAFETY

Leadership Green Bay Team 5, also know as “Superheroes of Safety” are literally setting a very important educational opportunity into motion. They conceived of their project after sitting down and agreeing something they all could connect with was children and how they could help them learn to be safe in their home environment. The goal for their project is to be able to construct a mobile training unit to help educate people on the risks of the home, and how to protect themselves and others from those risks. The project will allow many children and adults to learn about the possible issues that can arise in the home which are sometimes are ignored.The mobile safety unit will provide scenarios for people to experience, as well as an array of safety products and how to use them. The team is backed by many different organizations and people willing to help with the funding; Nicolet Bank and the Green Bay Packers are among some of the supporters of the project. “Not only is the support of these organizations and companies awesome in itself, but also as I go on fundraising, it’s become such an awesome way to raise awareness about what we are doing, and what we are trying to prevent,” says team member Chet Lamers. The “Superheroes of Safety” are even expanding their project to many other aspects of the community. Because of its mobility, the mobile safety unit will be able to reach many different counties and cities. When not in use for teaching children and adults in the community, it can be used as a model for nursing students in the area, really touching all aspects of the community in a relatable and fun way. 12  Collective IMPACT | Spring 2016

BRINGING PARTY (PREVENT ALCOHOL AND RISK-RELATED TRAUMA IN YOUTH) TO GREEN BAY Leadership Green Bay Team 6 is crusading against teenage recklessness. Adopted from a concept originating in the Appleton area, the team is implementing the PARTY (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) Program in which high school students walk through the process of an alcohol-caused trauma from the point of injury through the rehabilitation process. The team wanted to find a way they could help teens and discovered the performances had been doing well every year in Appleton.The team’s event will occur annually and will be performance-based.They are partnering with the Anti Drug and Alcohol Task Force, along with St. Mary’s and St. Vincent’s hospitals. The performances will target Greater Green Bay area students in the sophomore class, as they are seen as being particularly vulnerable to questionable behavior and negative influence. Part of the performances will be victims of car crashes and similar things, speaking as a part of their community service or sentencing, along with live acting of scenarios that have been caused by alcohol.

The team plans to implement many real aspects of the risks that come with this type of behavior and to show teens what really can happen when they behave recklessly.

Bay, the Greater Green Bay Chamber hosts an annual Legacy of Leadership event and fundraiser. This alumni event is currently held every April, replacing previous all-class reunions and fundraising events. Legacy of Leadership was created to celebrate the longevity of the Leadership Green Bay program. Past graduating classes are honored. In April 2016, Legacy of Leadership applauded the classes of 1986 and 1987. “Alumni events have been happening since the program started, although there were a lot of different ways we went about it. This is a more of a formal event,” says Sue Zittlow, director of workforce development at the Greater Green Bay Chamber.

By Jennifer Hogeland

The evening includes a social, dinner and keynote presentation. Attendees have an opportunity to bid on some amazing silent auction items with proceeds benefiting the Leadership Green Bay program and scholarship recipients. Approximately 150 people attend the Legacy of Leadership each year. Attendees include past graduates and members of the public who are interested in the


program.“We have a lot of businesses that support Leadership Green Bay, so they often attend along with the recipients of the Leadership Green Bay small group projects,” adds Zittlow. Legacy of Leadership is the perfect event to honor the Leo Frigo Award and the John M. and Meredith B. Rose Business Award winners.

“These individuals and businesses are really standouts that have given back to the community,” says Zittlow.“When you look at the business award winners, they are all very dedicated to staff development and to the community — it’s amazing the impact they’ve had on the community.” Winners of the 2016 awards were Keith Pamperin and Schreiber Foods.

“The awards are to showcase both individuals and businesses that are committed to leadership development and giving back to the community,” says Zittlow. Individuals and businesses submit applications, which are reviewed, and a committee selects the winners of the two distinguished Leadership Green Bay awards. The Leo Frigo Award honors a graduate of the Leadership Green Bay program who is still involved in the community. Zittlow explains the award is named after Leo Frigo because of his volunteer work and community commitment. The John M. and Meredith B. Rose Business Award is given to a business that has dedicated itself to the community and supports the Leadership Green Bay program.

Improving our quality of life

E

ach year, between 40-45 Leadership Green Bay participants create teams tasked with identifying a community need and developing a plan to help meet those needs. The projects they complete are designed to help program participants become stronger leaders and more engaged community stewards while raising awareness of an issue, improve team skills and effect positive change. Since the program’s inception, 1,110 individuals have graduated from Leadership Green Bay. They’ve completed 140 team projects and counting (not including Class of 2016 projects) that have benefited the community. These projects include brick and mortar-type projects as well as projects that have changed the quality of life in the area. Members of Leadership Green Bay have generated more than $2.3 million worth of volunteer time that has been given back to the community. “The team community projects are a culminating experiential learning opportunity for Leadership Green Bay participants,” says Sue Zittlow, Greater Green Bay Chamber director of workforce development. “The team community projects provide the participants an opportunity to engage, impact and change our community plus execute the Leadership Challenge practices. It’s amazing the impact the community projects have on the community and on the individuals/teams in the Leadership Green Bay program.”

LEADERSHIP GREEN BAY Testimonials

BENEFITS OF LEADERSHIP GREEN BAY ON MY CAREER

M

y participation in Leadership Green Bay (Class of 1994) has been one of, if not the most impactful investments in my professional and personal life. As a social worker/volunteer coordinator for Brown County Human Services Department, I have reaped benefits for all of my programs that work with children from Child Protective Services. I have continuously served on several Leadership Green Bay committees since my graduation including as past president of board and continuing for many years now as the facilitator of the Opening Retreat. I have witnessed the positive effects of dozens of small group projects, which have impacted our community’s parks, trails, human service agencies, the environment, youth leadership, diversity and many more.

PHOTO STEVE LEVIN

Newcomers to Green Bay who participate are immersed in the various aspects of the community covered on each of the curriculum days. Participants finish the year with greater knowledge of the community as a whole and a network of inspiring colleagues and friends as a result of their shared experiences in the Leadership Green Bay program. Some young professionals have shared that prior to the class, they were thinking of leaving the area but now are actually encouraging their friends to move here!

“Some young professionals have shared that prior to the class, they were thinking of leaving the area but now are actually encouraging their friends to move here!” 26  Collective IMPACT | Spring 2016

Participants in Leadership Green Bay are highly motivated and typically well connected in the community. Whenever I have a need for one of our programs, the Leadership Green Bay network is my “go to” source. Some small group project teams of Leadership Green Bay have sponsored events, developed websites, recruited volunteers, and remodeled a visitation center, among other projects benefitting our programs for abused and neglected children. Many participants also belong to other organizations and service clubs, which look to make an impact in the community. Leadership Green Bay alumni serve on the boards of every nonprofit in our community. Some alumni have run for public office and utilized their network to work on their campaigns. In addition to the energy generated by the inspirational members of classes I’ve worked with, I’ve made many lifetime friendships! — Glen Tilot, Leadership Green Bay Class of 1994

WHAT THE LEADERSHIP GREEN BAY PROGRAM HAS MEANT TO ME

I

wanted to participate in the Leadership Green Bay program because I knew I would meet many individuals I would probably never meet otherwise. I have met some great people over the years and have used their knowledge to help me both in my job and in volunteer opportunities.

The reason that I continue to be active in the program is that Leadership Green Bay is continuing to evolve for the benefit of our community. Leadership Green Bay brings to the participants information that isn’t easily accessible on various topics. In many cases it addresses what our understanding of an issue, project or organization is and shows that the purpose is entirely different.

Opening ourselves to the many aspects of the community is one of the best parts of Leadership Green Bay, to not only understand the community but also know that we have a responsibility to contribute to our community. After many years when the members of my class and others see each other we still have fun! — Mary Jane Herber, Leadership Green Bay Class of 1986
