Proven Asset to Our Community

 

For 34 years Leadership Contra Costa has been helping identify and prepare community leaders. With an alumni roster of more than 700-800 graduates, including former Mayors of Walnut Creek Loella Haskew, Cindy Silva and Kathy Hicks, former Assemblywoman Lynne Leach, former Concord Mayor, Lou Rosas; Martinez Mayor Rob Schroder; and Ret. Superior Court Judge Harlan Grossman, this program has proven to be an asset to the community and society.

The class members have also included Jay Lifson from the Lafayette Chamber
and Steve Van Dorn from the Pleasanton Chamber. As the Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau expands the emphasis on regional collaboration, Leadership Contra Costa provides a unique opportunity for furthering this effort.

Program begins September 2022. Click here to apply!
