Leadership Loveland

Leadership Loveland is designed to develop emerging leaders in order to supplement and encourage high-quality local leadership. Through the involvement of business, civic, and community leaders, the Leadership Loveland program addresses these basic goals:

  • To identify, motivate and develop community leaders
  • To assist future leaders in identifying issues and problems facing the community and to develop possible solutions
  • To provide program participants with opportunities to meet current leaders and encouraging greater community involvement

On the second Tuesday of each month from September to May, Leadership Loveland program participants will attend monthly one-day seminars. During the year, the class will be introduced to a diverse curriculum that includes in-depth information on areas including:

  • Leadership Development
  • Business and the Economy
  • Public Safety
  • Health and Human Services
  • Educational Systems
  • State Government
  • City Government
  • Arts and Leisure
  • Natural Resources

Designed by the Leadership Loveland Steering Committee, the seminar format will consist of information and discussion on issues related to the program topics. In addition, the participants will experience decision-making and leadership styles. The program formats vary, but each will include ample opportunity for participant involvement and interaction.

Graduates of this program have gone on to become active leaders within the community. The Chamber encourages City Council members and people seeking political office to participate in Leadership Loveland if they have not done so. Anyone seeking or serving in a position of leadership in their company or community would greatly benefit from taking this class.

Latest Leadership Loveland Class Project

Class Project

Shop with Heart for Student Art

The "Shop with Heart for Student Art" project combines the 2020 Leadership Loveland class' diverse range of interests (including shopping local, Loveland education, sustainability, and the local artistic community) into a single team effort.

In partnership with the Thompson Education Foundation and the Loveland Downtown Business Alliance, Leadership Loveland produced unique reusable shopping bags. Each bag was stuffed with coupons for local businesses and promoted online "Red Bag Sales." Bags were distributed as a free gift for Lovelanders that donated to the Lu Haskew Endowment for the Arts. All donations will go towards the purchase of art supplies for K-12 classrooms in the Thompson School District.

Project Impacts

  • Over $4,000 raised for the Lu Haskew Endowment for the Arts
  • 1,000 reusable shop local bags distributed to Loveland customers
  • Over 7,000 coupons and swag items distributed
  • Hundreds of one-on-one conversations with locals about the importance of shopping local and supporting the arts
  • Project supplies purchased from local vendors to assure all aspects of the project benefitted local businesses
  • Cost of bags and supplies covered by sponsorships, meaning 100% of donations went towards art supplies for students
