Leadership Montana happenings: upcoming events, blog, newsletter


Stay up to date with Leadership Montana’s current events, blogs, and newsletters.


In March 2020, our world became gripped by a global pandemic. Leadership Montana’s in-person events in March and April have been postponed until we can safely be together again. When that day comes, we will ensure that all of our events follow local, state, and federal guidelines for meetings of our size as recommended by the Center for Disease Control.

We are moving forward with our plans for our programming for our cohorts who will begin gathering in September 2020. We are currently selecting the participants of our flagship and Masters class.

If you have any question, please email chantel at leadershipmontana dot org

We can’t be together right now. But we will again soon. In the meantime, be well…and lead well.



LMT Live is a new and quickly formed program designed to help keep LMT alumni connected during a challenging time in our world. Many are isolated, working from home, and generally disconnected from our communities. We are here to help us all connect, listen, learn, and lead.
