Participants are chosen on merit and their fit with the overall demographic balance of the group. The success of the program depends on the diversity of the group so balance is achieved by ensuring there is representation from local government areas, community sectors, professions, age and gender.

Any applicant who is unsuccessful should not be deterred from applying again in the future.

Participation in the Leaders for Geelong program requires a significant time commitment over two years.  Applicants must have the support of their organisation to participate fully.


The fee for the two-year program is $6000 (plus GST) payable upon acceptance into the program. Fees may be paid by the individual or their employer. 

Individuals or organisations with financial or economic barriers should not be discouraged from applying. To discuss individual circumstances in confidence or any other queries please contact Rosemary on 5227 8075.
