(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam residents who live or work in the city are encouraged to sign-up for a program that prepares the next generation of community leaders. Leadership Beaver Dam is molded after other leadership programs from the state but their focus is on the local community. The full day classes meet from September through May on the second Wednesday of every month. Leadership Beaver Dam Alumni Jeremy Mason says the program is centered around multiple themes that allows participants to learn more about local leaders and the community. There is a $550 entry fee to participate, which includes lunches, program materials, all fees associated with transportation, tours, speakers, and presentations. Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce President Phil Fritsche says Leadership Beaver Dam is a great networking opportunity. Those interested in participating in the 2018-19 class can begin registering. Applications can be found at the Chamber or on their website at www.beaverdamchamber.com. For more information call 920-887-8879.
