I can’t say enough about the Leadership Golden program. Anyone who wants a crash course in how local government in Golden works and some of the other really important elements that make up our amazing community should check out the program. You’ll find Leadership Golden graduates all over town, serving in elected office, on boards and commissions, and playing key community volunteer roles as well. It’s a great way to get involved if you’re new to Golden, and to dive deeper into how everything actually works even if you’ve lived in Golden for a long time.
The program is free and runs September through May. Topics include Golden city government, public works, Golden’s history, public finance, the city’s growth and development, the educational system, and the arts.
You can get more info and an application form on the Leadership Golden website.
