The CfG’s Leadership Portfolio Alumni is made up of more than 500 members from Leaders for Geelong, Activate, LEAD Barwon and the Barwon Community Leadership Program.

This number of alumni demonstrates the value of the investment made in leadership development since 2006. These graduates are passionate advocates for our city-region and are prepared, connected and committed to play an active role in community life.

One Alumni Member is elected by the Alumni body each year, for a two year period, to be a representative on the Committee for Geelong’s Strategy and Policy Committee.  This election occurs just prior to the Committee for Geelong’s AGM. The S&PC is comprised of Committtee for Geelong Board Members, and nominated Corporate Plus Members, Corporate Members, Community Members and Alumni Representatives. This committee informs and drives the strategic direction of advocacy and policy of the Committee for Geelong. An S&PC member list can be found here.

The Leadership Portfolio Alumni stay connected through a program of events and frequent communiques. They are empowered to work toward a successful future for the city-region by supporting local causes, contributing to Boards, and enjoying opportunities for further developing networks.

The vision outlined by Dr Jim Cousins AO, CfG’s Chairperson during the inaugural Leaders for Geelong Program, still applies:

“The program will deliver Geelong a strong and committed alumni of emerging leaders that will go a long way to ensuring our future is strong and vibrant.”
