Fischer Community Leadership Program

The Fischer Community Leadership Program is an initiative that enables and empowers leadership within the community from the grassroots up. The focus of the program is to develop leadership skills and create a group of community leaders that are equipped to take action and make a difference.

The program is aptly named in honor of Tim Fischer, former Australian politician and diplomat who served as leader of the National Party from 1990 to 1999 and who called Lockhart home.

The Fischer Community Leadership Program is again running in Federation and Greater Hume Councils in 2024, with the program now offered as an  immersive workshop format.

Participants will dive deep in leadership fundamentals, connecting with local leaders and guest speakers, with a focus on building and strengthening core leadership skills. A key component of the program will involve project management, with participants undertaking the scoping and planning of small community-led projects.

The program is an initiative of Fischer Community Leadership in partnership with Federation and Greater Hume Councils, auspice by the Border Trust and delivered by Alpine Valleys Community Leadership.
