Since 1996, over 800 individuals from over 200 organizations have completed the Leadership Macomb core program. Each year, approximately 50 individuals are accepted into this unique educational program. The cohort meets for 11 full day sessions between September and May. During these sessions, the assets, issues and systems that make up our county are explored in-depth. The systems include government, education and workforce development, health and human services, the arts, cultures, defense, business, justice, community service and the environment. Sessions meet in various locations throughout Macomb County and are led by subject experts. Session agendas include expert speakers, panel discussions, group dialogue, and exclusive field trips. Each session provides a unique learning experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else.
