University of Wisconsin Extension and its partners in the three county region are proud to announce the inaugural session of the Crawford-Monroe-Vernon (CMV) Leadership Program.

The CMV Leadership Program focuses on building leadership skills through hands-on workshops, participant-guided discussions of vital issues in our area, and site visits to locations in our region where innovative leaders are doing their bit to make our community a better place.

The program meets monthly beginning in October and wraps up in May. It is open to anyone who lives or works in the three county region.

Topics on tap for the upcoming session include rural healthcare, education, organic agriculture, community development, and a field trip to Madison focused on state government.

The program fee of $300 includes breakfast and lunch at every session and enables the program to bring in high-quality presenters from all around the region.

Scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis; those interested are encouraged to contact program facilitator Will Cronin, of the Crawford County UW-Extension office,to discuss options. Employers interested in sponsoring employees for the program are also encouraged to contact Cronin for more information.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are due by Sept. 26. The first session will take place in Prairie du Chien Oct. 9.
