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 175 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. 

2017 Leadership Northern Colorado Prepares for Graduation
Public and alumni invited to attend presentation on leadership

Fort Collins, Colo. – The eighth 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 “Legendary Leadership.”

Rod C. Taylor, Ph.D., uses the history of pop music from 1951 forward to explore seven qualities that contribute to dynamic, effective, and influential leadership. For this presentation, he will be joined by two fellow Nashville-based musicians, Matt Billinglea on drums (Taylor Swift) and Jon Letourneau on guitar (Route 40). Through this interactive, music-centered presentation, Rod offers participants a fun and engaging way to reflect on some key characteristics common to successful and impactful leadership.

The event will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on June 27 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 Taylor.

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.
