Leadership Montgomery’s Emerging Leaders Program is focused on training the county’s leaders of tomorrow. Once per month, for nine months, participants engage in blend of professional development and county exploration to help prepare them as well-rounded future leaders. The curriculum includes hands-on learning and in-depth discussion on county challenges and opportunities. Subject matter areas for the 2018-2019 program include:

  • Montgomery County 101
  • Economic Development
  • Communication
  • Relationship Building
  • Leadership Fundamentals
  • Civic Engagement

Experiential learning components include visiting unique county locations and program opening and closing retreats.

This intensive experience is designed to inform, educate, and connect rising leaders who are between the ages of 25 and 35, and live or work in Montgomery County, to the resources and expertise of other local leaders. Participants explore meaningful ways to strengthen their communities and add value to the organizations they represent, while advancing their professional goals.

Professionals ranging from 25 to 35 years of age working within the public, private, and nonprofit sectors who either live or work
in Montgomery County. Typically, these professionals have at least two years of work experience and can demonstrate a commitment to volunteer service in their communities.

Graduates leave the program as part of an alumni network of more than 2,000 emerging and established leaders who are better informed of county history and present-day realities. Graduates have the opportunity to:

  • Sharpen their negotiation, public speaking, relationship building and conflict resolution skills
  • Learn from a mentor
  • Enhance their resume
  • Build their professional network

Graduates emerge better connected to the issues, people, and service opportunities that can lead to meaningful advancements in the county and their careers.

By investing in their high-potential employees, organizations who support staff participation gain visibility and recognition as a contributor to a thriving Montgomery County. Organizations also benefit from their employee’s enhanced professional skills and diverse new network of local leaders.
