As the premier leadership development program in the region, Leadership Forum was designed to prepare for the community needs that demand the involvement of informed citizens. Leadership Forum offers structured learning opportunities in an atmosphere that stimulates creative thinking and encourages participants to work together to utilize both new and proven tools to meet the challenges of today and to prepare for tomorrow.  Class members represent business, labor, religion, government, minority groups, and civic organizations. Leadership Forum is made possible through the support of past graduates and organizations.

Fort Bend Leadership Forum is a dynamic, ten-month program, August through May starting off with a one and a half day opening retreat in San Antonio. The opening retreat is followed by monthly one-day sessions covering criminal justice, diversity, education, economic development/infrastructure, health and social services, municipal/county government, and a two-day trip to Austin for the state government session. In addition, the class visits Washington, D.C. for a special three-day national government session. The program is completed with a one and a half day ending retreat and graduation ceremony in Galveston.

The genuine personal and professional relationships you will develop with your classmates will last a lifetime, and you will become a member of the 1,400+ alumni who have benefitted from this uniquely rewarding experience.
