Leadership Portage County Sneak Peak Webinars

By Portage County Business Council

Leadership Portage County (LPC) challenges participants to broaden their understanding of Portage County and develop their leadership skills through network development, education, and community engagement.

Due to the pandemic, we have not had an LPC class Aug 2020-May 2021. However, there has been interest in the class that begins Fall 2021. As a way to thank everyone for their patience in waiting for the program to safely start again, we are offering Leadership Portage County “preview” Webinars through Zoom featuring favorite topics from past classes.

These sessions are open to everyone, whether an LPC alumni or not. This is a great way to decide if Leadership Portage County is for you or to get a glimpse of what the sessions will be like if you have already applied! Join us for one or all of the scheduled sessions. See a full list of topics below.
