Leadership Cheyenne is the experience of a lifetime!
Applications are now being accepted for the next Class which will commence in August of 2019. Applications are due on Friday, June 14th and all who apply will be required to participate in a reception on Wednesday, June 26th. Leadership Cheyenne is a program for a diverse group of business professionals who participate in a challenging, interactive and thought-provoking nine month educational program, followed by a three month event planning process. The program is designed to promote a better understanding of the community, build and enhance leadership skills and develop a strong network of future community leaders.
“Leadership Cheyenne encourages participants to share the benefit of their own experiences while they also learn from others. The goal is to inform participants about the diversity of our community in regards to government, education, business, economic development and social issues.” shared Leadership Cheyenne Graduate and Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce Director of Partner Services, Justin Gorman.
A community is only as good as its leaders. Effective leaders see where the community has been, understand its unique challenges and resources, and have the courage and skills to make an impact. Communities that make a concerted effort to develop leadership qualities in their citizens strengthen the economic health and provide other extensive advantages over other communities.
Each Leadership Cheyenne Class is unique and finds their own way to contribute to the community. The best part of the program is the development of valuable relationships created along the way. Be a leader who believes in the future of our community!
“Leadership Cheyenne has fostered life-long relationships and an understanding of the history, culture, determination, pride, and vision that built and continues to define this great community. Leadership Cheyenne has proven invaluable to me and I recommend it to everyone!”– Chris Allred, VP Commercial Lending at Security First Bank and 2018-2019 Leadership Cheyenne class member
The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce formed Leadership Cheyenne in 1985 with the goal of developing leaders for the future. The purpose of Leadership Cheyenne is to educate participants about the community and help them develop a desire and commitment for life-long civic trusteeship.
