Alumni Advantage


Our alumni are our greatest source of pride. Leadership Geauga County boasts more than over 850 alumni who represent every sector and neighborhood in Geauga County. Our alumni are leaders participating in local and regional organizations, volunteering throughout the community, serving on nonprofit boards and hold local government offices.

Why is alumni support important to Leadership Geauga?

 It all begins with you! This network of alumni who share experiences of personal growth, individual empowerment, and enhanced knowledge of the Geauga County community are uniquely positioned to pass that legacy on to the next generation of leaders. Leadership Geauga is the conduit to make that happen.

These are the hallmarks of the Leadership Geauga experience:

CONNECTIONS: Networking to enrich your personal and professional life. “I’m a Leadership Geauga alum” opens doors to business, civic, and government leaders.

FOUNDATION: The self-knowledge, skills, confidence, and community awareness gained from one’s Leadership adventure are relevant every day.

FRIENDSHIPS: Enjoy lasting, one-of-a-kind relationships, based on shared experiences

COMMUNITY: With all of Geauga County as the classroom, gain a wider understanding of the traditions, history and stories that connect us.  Team and collaborative skills enable alumni to engage and serve their profession, volunteer service and the greater community with energy and determination.

GRATITUDE: Appreciation for the opportunity to enrich the community while enriching one’s own life and family.

IMPACT: Your involvement strengthens Leadership Geauga, supports work with current Adult, Youth and Heritage classes, and offers lasting value to your alumni family and hundreds of Geauga County citizens and organizations.

We are very proud that you made it a priority to participate in Leadership Geauga. Thank you for supporting the dynamic work of creating future Geauga County leaders!


Our commitment

Leadership Geauga is committed to the continuing educating and engagement of our alumni community.  To support the growth of our alumni community LGC hosts educational and networking events throughout the year.  We know that their success is our community’s success and we remain committed to our alumni after graduation.


Tuition covers less than 20% of LGC’s annual operating costs. Alumni involvement and support helps bridge that gap and provides new class members with exclusive access to people, projects and events which drive progress across our region.
