Leadership Great Falls

/Leadership Great Falls

Purpose: Since its inception, in 1978,  nearly 1,500 community leaders have graduated from our local Leadership Great Falls program.  Leadership Great Falls is a community-wide program designed to identify, educate and motivate potential leaders for the betterment of Great Falls community:  banking/finance, healthcare, agriculture, retail business, government and many other industries, large and small.  Leadership graduates, in turn, become active community role models.  They motivate the local workforce, become engaged in civic organizations, serve as a sounding board for area businesses and provide countless hours of volunteer time.
