FORT COLLINS — Leadership Northern Colorado is now accepting applications for the 2019 Leadership Northern Colorado class.

A joint initiative of the Fort Collins, Greeley and Loveland chambers of commerce, the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County, Leadership Northern Colorado was established to build human capacity and to identify, define and address the issues facing the Northern Colorado region.

Thirty current and emerging leaders from throughout the region will be selected to participate in the 2019 program, which will begin in January and conclude in June.  Participants will come together on the fourth Tuesday of the month for a day-long session to learn about public governance, land use and infrastructure, education and workforce, economic development and regional leadership.

The tuition for the six-month program is $850 and includes all meals, session materials and graduation recognition.  Applications are available online. The application deadline is Thursday, Nov. 1, at 5 p.m.  Applications can be sent by email to LeaderNoCo@fcchamber.org or completed online.
