Summit County CMC Leadership Summit completes 2017 program

The 2017 class of Leadership Summit graduated in mid-May from the program offered through Colorado Mountain College. Among others, participants came from local business, government and nonprofit sectors including Team Summit Colorado, Always Mountain Time and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area.

In mid-May, 20 area participants from 17 local companies, governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations graduated as part of Leadership Summit program's class of 2017.

The leadership course, administered through Colorado Mountain College, has been part of the Summit County community for more than a decade. Its mission is to educate future community and business leaders by providing experiences to increase awareness, develop leadership skills and motivate attendees to be actively engaged in the community.

Participants meet one day per month September through May, which results in more than 60 hours of interactive professional development. Topics covered include discussions specific to Summit County's challenges — from housing to growth and cost of living — and panels comprised of local authorities and trending leadership topics.
