Leadership Loveland

Leadership Loveland is designed to develop emerging leaders in order to supplement and encourage high-quality local leadership. Through the involvement of business, civic, and community leaders, the Leadership Loveland program addresses these basic goals:

  • To identify, motivate and develop community leaders
  • To assist future leaders in identifying issues and problems facing the community and to develop possible solutions
  • To provide program participants with opportunities to meet current leaders and encouraging greater community involvement

On the second Tuesday of each month from September to May, Leadership Loveland program participants will attend monthly one-day seminars. During the year, the class will be introduced to a diverse curriculum that includes in-depth information on areas including:

  • Leadership Development
  • Business and the Economy
  • Public Safety
  • Health and Human Services
  • Educational Systems
  • State Government
  • City Government
  • Arts and Leisure
  • Natural Resources

Designed by the Leadership Loveland Steering Committee, the seminar format will consist of information and discussion on issues related to the program topics. In addition, the participants will experience decision-making and leadership styles. The program formats vary, but each will include ample opportunity for participant involvement and interaction.

Graduates of this program have gone on to become active leaders within the community. The Chamber encourages City Council members and people seeking political office to participate in Leadership Loveland if they have not done so. Anyone seeking or serving in a position of leadership in their company or community would greatly benefit from taking this class.

Latest Leadership Loveland Class Project

Class Project
The 2017 Leadership Loveland class set a goal to raise $40,000 to purchase a van that would be dedicated to providing transportation for Homeless Veterans Program at The Edge. Additional funds raised beyond the $40,000 goal went to support the ongoing need for supportive services of the Housing First model. In order to do this, Wonderland Homes graciously provided a home to be transformed by the talents and creativity of local designers and vendors. To each room of the home, they brought their skills, latest design styles, paint, fabric, furniture and accessories for a total home makeover.
The home was open to the public for a small price, from April 21 to May 14, 2017.
