As the premier leadership development program in the region, the Fort Bend Leadership Forum was designed to prepare for the community needs that demand the involvement of informed citizens. The Fort Bend 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.

The Fort Bend Leadership Forum is a 10 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, economic development/infrastructure, health and social services, municipal/county government and a two-day trip to Austin for the state government session. In addition, this year’s class will participate in a special three-day national government session in Washington D.C.  The Leadership Program is completed with a one and a half day ending retreat and graduation ceremony in Galveston.
