The CORE (Connecting Our Regions Execs) Program is the premiere offering of Leadership Montgomery. Through this exclusive program, established executives from across the public, private and nonprofit sectors will expand their knowledge, influence and effectiveness as leaders and advocates for Montgomery County.

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.

The program provides participants with an unprecedented opportunity to dialog and engage with Montgomery County’s most seasoned leaders and decision makers as they explore pressing issues and examine the important trends that will shape the county in the future.

In addition, participants will also benefit from the expert feedback and insights of their fellow participants as they work together in Sounding Board “consulting” teams to address individual and organizational challenges.

While there is no ‘one-size-fits all’ approach for program acceptance, participants typically possess the following:

  • Years of professional experience: 10 years +
  • Job Title(s): C-Suite, VP, Managing/Executive Director, Partner, Owner, Chief/Assistant Chief, Superintendent/Associate Superintendent.
  • Organizational responsibilities: Decision-making, personnel and budgetary oversight for departments, divisions.

Participants 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.

Organizations supportive of their staff member’s participation can gain additional visibility and recognition as being committed to the improvement of  Montgomery County as well as engaged employees with access to a network that can assist in helping businesses thrive.
