Leadership alumni set sights on a sustainable future

In January, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors approved a new structure for the Leadership Douglas County organization.
A task force met in November of 2017, and a strategic planning retreat was held, facilitated by Scotty Martin of reVision, Inc. The objectives for the retreat were to instill a vision and ownership for participating alumni to develop a short- and long-term plan for the sustainability of Leadership Douglas County and provide the tools to make that happen. This group identified goals around three themes: Community Impact, Membership and Legacy/Sustainability, as well as the need for a new Mission Statement and a revised governance structure for Leadership Douglas County and the LDC Alumni Association.

What’s Next:


Among the initiatives that the task force will be working on is to expand the LDC Steering Committee into a more robust group of alumni from a variety of graduation years, with sub-committees aligned to the lifecycle of the LDC participant. The Alumni Association will become a sub-committee under the Steering Committee, along with sub-committees for recruitment, communications and sponsorships, all of which will be made up of alumni from any class year; in addition, there will be the Programming Committee, consisting of the most current class grads who will continue to plan the incoming LDC class’ monthly sessions.


There will be information distributed this spring on the opportunities to be involved with Leadership Douglas County at a deepeer level and we look forward to many of you taking a role. We are excited with this opportunity to extend the leadership experience for LDC graduates and strengthen the program for future participants. In the meantime, if you’d like more information, please contact Carrie.
