The CORE (Connecting Our Regions Execs) Program is the premiere offering of Leadership Montgomery. This interactive experience is designed to inform,  educate, and connect the seasoned leaders and decision makers of Montgomery County to the resources and expertise of other local leaders.

Once-per-month,for nine months, participants engage in a hands-on learning curriculum that includes in-depth discussion on the challenges and opportunities facing Montgomery County.

Subject matter areas for the program include:

  • Public Safety
  • Education
  • Economic Development
  • Diversity
  • Real Estate and Transportation
  • Arts
  • County and State Government

Experiential learning components include: a guided bus tour of Montgomery County; a trip to Annapolis; a visit to MoCo’s Correctional Facility in Clarksburg and Public Service Training Academy. In addition, the program includes opening and closing overnight retreats.

To enhance the CORE program experience, a bonus “Intro to Race Equity” pre-session will be offered exclusively to the 2021 cohort. This enrichment session is a one-day workshop designed to provide an additional opportunity to explore race equity and its impact as it relates to future program session topics. The session will be offered prior to the opening retreat and, although not mandatory, participation is highly encouraged.

Seasoned leaders within the public, private, and nonprofit sectors who either live or work in Montgomery County. Typically, these leaders are senior executives in their respective organizations.

Graduates leave the program as part of an alumni network of more than 2,500 leaders who are better informed of county history and present- day realities. They also emerge better connected to the people, organizations, and service opportunities that can collectively move Montgomery County forward.
