Northern Colorado is morphing into an area with regional potential, population and challenges.  Leadership with a regional perspective will be essential for a positive vision of our future. With that in mind, Leadership Northern Colorado launched in 2010 and now has over 245 graduates of the program.

A joint initiative of the Fort Collins, Greeley and Loveland Chambers of Commerce, the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County, this six-month interactive development program will focus on regional issues, regionalism and regional leadership skills.  The program is designed to educate and motivate leaders who are committed to shaping the future of our region. 

2018 Leadership Northern Colorado Prepares for Graduation

The ninth Leadership Northern Colorado (LNC) class will soon complete their six month program and LNC alumni and the public are invited to celebrate the class accomplishments and to learn more about leadership at a breakfast featuring Dick Foth, author of Known – Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World.

Dick Foth is an author, storyteller, and popular speaker.  He holds a master’s degree from Wheaton College Graduate School and a doctorate from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He and his wife Ruth have invested the last twenty-five years working in the marketplace of business and government to encourage leaders in their personal lives.  In his latest book, Known – Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World, Forth explores the Digital Age and the need for true friendship. He notes that “we are designed for real engagement with others—affirmation that goes beyond a simple “like” on social media, for connection over meals, for hope and excitement about the future.” 

The event will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on June 26 at Windsong Event Center, 2901 Saddler Blvd, outside of Fort Collins. Sponsored by Kaiser Permanente and Public Service Credit Union, the event provides a great way for Alumni and the community to reconnect to the program and will raise funds to provide scholarships to future class participants.  Registration is $20 and available at www.FortCollinsChamber.com.  Registration includes breakfast and the keynote presentation by Foth.

Leadership Northern Colorado, a joint initiative of the Fort Collins, Greeley and Loveland chambers of commerce, the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County, is designed to build human capacity and to identify, define and address the issues facing the Northern Colorado region.
