Leadership Eau Claire™ Testimonials


Here’s What Area Leaders Have Said

“Being shy and introverted, I didn’t really think LEC was going to be for me. Was I ever wrong! LEC is for anyone who wants to grow as a person and make a difference in their community.”
Jason Christopherson, RCU (LEC Class of 2010)

“Each LEC class is different; however, what LEC offers never changes. LEC offers you the unique opportunity to invest in the community that is investing in you and your business. The education, opportunities and insight provided by LEC along with the relationships, networking, and leadership skills you can foster make LEC an invaluable tool that you cannot afford to miss. I would participate in LEC 2012, 2013, 2014, etc. if allowed!”
Daneille M. Strong, Attorney, Weld, Riley, Prenn & Ricci, S.C. (LEC Class of 2011)

“As a relatively newcomer to the Chippewa Valley, I don’t know of a better way to get to know this wonderful community. Each month I look forward to learning more about the opportunities, resources and history of the Chippewa Valley. The networking relationships of Leadership Eau Claire are invaluable! It has been a great experience, one I would recommend to anyone, even if you grew up here, this is a view of the community that will stay with you for a lifetime.”
Judy Ring, Xcel Energy (LEC Class of 2011)

“I have learned so much more about our community through the unique experiences provided by Leadership Eau Claire. The experiences, the new acquaintances and friendships are invaluable. Participating in LEC has been one of the best investments I've made.”
Kerri Zastrow, WPS Health Insurance (LEC Class of 2011)

“I am a native of Eau Claire and have been amazed at all that I have learned about our community through LEC. Whether you have been here for five days or 50 years, LEC is an experience that solidifies why this is such a wonderful community to be a part of.”
Sheylly Pryse, Group Health Cooperative (LEC Class of 2010)

“I have learned more in my short time with Leadership Eau Claire than I had in the previous three years living here. The opportunity cannot be overstated – the experiences, the connections and the personal and professional growth. I can now make more informed decisions about how to better support our local community."
Nicole Andrews, UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education (LEC Class of 2010)

"Part of my job requires understanding the community we serve and Leadership Eau Claire helped me gain valuable insight into the community."
Charity Speich, Chippewa Valley Airport, Airport Manger Chippewa Valley Regional Airport (LEC Class of 2008)

“In what seemed like a very short year I not only got a broad perspective on business sectors that Eau Claire is built on, but I also got to know great people who are helping to shape this community. Fun, informative, and way too fast.”
Paul Cook, Community Health Partnership (LEC Class of 2008)

“I had a great time in Leadership Eau Claire. I have lived in Eau Claire for 25 years and saw and experienced things that were new and exciting to me. Through LEC I got to meet local government officials, watch a live broadcast of TV 13, and visit our county jail. I networked with a great group of people and made lifelong friendships.”
Stephanie Prock, Gold Cross Answering Service, Gold Cross Courier (LEC Class of 2008)
