Leadership Monterey County
The Premier Course for Emerging Local Leaders in the Community
Leadership Monterey County is an extensive program that builds awareness of local business and community concerns. Our program encourages involvement and stewardship to help shape the future of Monterey This 10-month educational program (February to November) offers a comprehensive focus on important community issues. Graduates take on many roles in the community including membership on nonprofit boards, participation on city and county boards and commissions, public office, and leadership roles at all levels of civic, business, nonprofit, community and neighborhood groups.
Formed in 2018, Leadership Monterey County aims to be the premier leadership development program in our area. The program benefits from building on the over 30-year foundations of our successful predecessor local leadership programs (Leadership Monterey Peninsula and Leadership Salinas Valley). Most of our challenges are regional and we decided that our leadership program should unite and serve the entire County.
Individuals benefit from our program in several ways including: a comprehensive understanding of important community issues and organizations, the ability to meet the “movers and shakers’ in the community, building a diverse network of informed colleagues, strengthening professional skills, and expanding contacts.
