Leadership Montgomery is proud to announce its Core Class of 2013, a group of 48 senior executives of large and small businesses, county and state officials, and executive directors of nonprofit organizations, as well as community volunteers.
Leadership Montgomery brings together current and emerging leaders in its Core program and offers a unique opportunity to increase their understanding of the complex social and economic issues of Montgomery County. Through an intensive, interactive program – which runs from September 2012 through May 2013 – members of the Core class will increase their knowledge and get a close-up look at the inner workings of Montgomery County and the greater community.
The quality of the LM program is reflected in the more than 1,000 graduates of the core program – and more than 1,800 overall – who have achieved a mark of excellence in county-wide service, since the program’s inception in 1989. Leadership Montgomery programming also includes Senior Leadership Montgomery, Youth Leadership Montgomery, and the one-day Inside Montgomery Executive Program.
