Leadership Frisco™ is a nine-month community leadership program sponsored by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. Each class starts with a team-building day and includes a full day each month dedicated to exploring the inner workings of Frisco’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, health services, and public safety. Members will also have the opportunity to learn about and practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community. Members of the program will also select and complete a class project during their year that benefits Frisco.
Applications for Class XXVI (2022/23) closed at 5:00 PM (CST) on Wednesday, June 15, 2022. Late applications will not be accepted.
Applications are now being reviewed by a selection committee. Due to the limited class size, all applicants cannot be accepted, and are encouraged to re-apply next year if not selected. ClassXXVI applicants will receive an invitation to the Meet & Greet on July 12, 2022, at 6:00 PM.
Applications for Class XXVII (2023/24) will become available in May 2023.
Class members work in groups to complete a community service project. This requires everyone to practice project management skills, learn traits of effective teamwork, assess their individual strengths and weaknesses and use organizational and problem-solving skills.
Class members interact with one another and with instructors, facilitators, and speakers, increasing their network and making valuable connections with people from a variety of backgrounds and industries within our community.
Class members are exposed to a wide variety of perspectives about the community. Each class session focuses on a different topic, ranging from business ethics and nonprofits to diversity and education. This helps them understand our community better and the resources available, which contributes to job performance.
The Program begins with an Opening Weekend September 9-10, 2022. This consists of:
• An Opening Session organized by Leadership Dynamics beginning at 10:00 AM on September 9, 2022;
• An introductory dinner and program the evening of September 9, 2022;
• A “Challenge by Choice” Ropes Course, which takes place all day, September 10, 2022.
Attendance at the Opening Weekend is mandatory for all participants.
