Leadership Montezuma

The mission of Leadership Montezuma is to cultivate a diverse cohort of emerging leaders from various backgrounds, occupations, and cultures to foster learning and forge strong connections with the many sectors of our community.

  • Two-year program

  • Program begins in September – 1 day a month through May.

  • Leadership Training focused on industries and sectors within Montezuma County

This program is designed to promote engaged and informed community leaders, as well as expand our citizen’s understanding of community resources, organizations, and systems.



Each year, new Leadership Montezuma Cohorts attend 9 full-day jam-packed and engaging leadership-driven sessions led by community leaders and subject matter experts from Montezuma County.



Foundational leadership competencies help participants improve their skill sets and empower them with knowledge on how to confront change, improve systems, and to create sustainable success.



Focusing on sectors within our county, participants gain the knowledge to implement purposeful and positive community change, form effective local relationships, and sustain community vitality.



Class members become the planners for the following year’s class, typically planning at least two sessions.
