Leadership Greater Concord fosters civic awareness in the community and participants are equipped with information they need in order to become more involved in activities that will enhance the region.

In September, the LGC Class of 2022 began their ten-month odyssey through the inner workings of Greater Concord. Their travels will take them from its beginnings as a small town by the railroad tracks to the city it is today—and identify what’s being done to prepare for the future. Then, each month, a day-long program will focus on an aspect of life in Greater Concord: history, the arts and culture; education; livable communities and sustainability; government and politics; the criminal justice system; economic development; communications and the media; health and human services and reflections and moving forward.

Now in its 29th year, Leadership Greater Concord has nearly 600 alumni, many of whom are serving on local town boards, nonprofit boards or serving on a municipal committee. Interested candidates who have a commitment to the community and are likely to assume greater responsibility in the future are encouraged to apply. Participants that are selected will ideally include those from business, government, education, civic groups, the arts, religion and community groups.
