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.
