Click Here for application information.

Leadership Douglas County (LDC) is a program for established and emerging leaders who live or work in Douglas County and want to take a deep dive into local issues, network with top leaders in the region and enhance their opportunities for civic engagement.


At Leadership Douglas County, we are creating a strong community through our program for all leaders from all backgrounds — civic, business, service, religious and non-profit. LDC provides the opportunity for diverse participants to broaden their knowledge of the community and learn from each other, while enhancing their leadership skills.

The program creates an expectation of servant leadership and builds in real opportunities to teach knowDSC_0130lrledge and skills through a monthly, day-long program, held on the first Wednesday of each month, October through June in various locations throughout the county.


Each month explores a different regional topic and also includes a leadership development segment and a class project. Upon graduation, participants become the planning committee for the upcoming year’s class, putting to use their own program experience, as they complete their second year of participation as alumni in the LDC program.
