Leadership Montana Introduces First Class…

Leadership Montana, a statewide collaboration of higher education, civic and business leaders, has selected the Class of 2004-2005, the program’s inaugural class.

Leadership Montana will present a seven session program of leadership development and business and policy education. At the heart of Leadership Montana will be the concept of community trusteeship. Leaders hold the future of their communities, their state and their families in trust. Ultimately, Leadership Montana members accept this role as trustholders and will form an important bond, creating a powerful network of energy, talent and leadership for our state.

The program will be conducted in locations across the state, beginning with an Orientation and Retreat in Bozeman and Big Sky on September 8, and concluding with Graduation in Billings on May 13, 2005.

Applications were reviewed by a statewide selection committee.

Leadership Montana is an affiliate of the Montana Chamber Foundation, a 510(c)(3) organization.

Leadership Montana is about creating what we in Montana want to BE, not just what we want to do. Those who have a passion for this state and their community, and are willing to accept responsibility for leadership, should consider this new and unique opportunity in future classes.
