The Advance Colorado New Leader Program is the perfect opportunity for individuals seeking a leadership role at the local or state level, the boardroom, the classroom or within their own neighborhood. New Leaders will take part in a 5-week program designed to motivate and sharpen the fundamental skills all leaders need to succeed. Participants will learn from and engage with a host of subject matter experts who can help promote leaders to the highest level of competence. New Leaders will also be given the opportunity to network with experts and elected officials who have seen the good, weathered the storms and achieved success at all levels of leadership. At the conclusion of the 5-week program, New Leaders will be given access to a rich library of resources to continue on their road to success as well as become part of a robust network that will encourage and support them throughout their leadership journey.
Presenters for this program include former Colorado Governor Bill Owens, Colorado Rising Action Executive Director Michael Fields, Maybell Group Principal Katie Behnke, Colorado Republican Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown, political consultant Dick Wadhams, and former Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Taheri.

We all want to turn our country around. But we all can’t run for office or give as much money as we’d like to the people and causes we love. So what can we do? You can turn the tables by investing a few hours a month giving back to your local community. Whether you’re a millennial or a retiree, we need your help! If you volunteer your time on a board or committee, you will have credibility/authority to speak into many issues. As a member of a board or committee you will be heard – you have a captive audience. We will teach the skills you will need to apply for local positions and to serve as an effective leader. The training includes: talk about the board/commission application process, learn what to expect once you are on a board, offer support as you serve your community. Our training classes also teach you how to put your own initiatives up for a vote – or at the very least fight the overreach of government through the ballot box.
