Become one of the next community leaders and grow personally and professionally!
Leadership Hudson is a nine-month program that introduces participants to city, business and community leaders in Hudson with the goal that at the program conclusion, participants will serve Hudson in future leadership positions. In addition to valuable networking and leadership development opportunities, the program also promotes each class to develop its own unique projects that will economically or educationally benefit the Hudson community.
The purpose and goals of Leadership Hudson are:
- to educate interested residents of Hudson and persons who work in Hudson about its various community organizations
- to encourage participation in those organizations
- to build a leadership resource to serve future community needs
The class is limited to no more than 15 participants who are representative of the community. Classes begin in September with a required two-day orientation. This includes team building, leadership skills, and a comprehensive overview of the Hudson community.
Participants agree to devote one full day from September through May for the class session and will partake in a class project focusing on community need. If employed, applicants must have the support of their employer to enroll in the program.
The sessions are devoted to various themes such as:
- Health and Human Services
- Quality of Life
- Leadership and Ethics
- Team Development
The program concludes with a graduation ceremony in May. Alumni are asked to make a commitment to be involved in planning future Leadership Hudson sessions and volunteer for some form of public service.
