Founded in 1992, the program is aimed at residents who are active in leadership roles in the private sector, government, or nonprofit community. Through a series of one and multi-day sessions, over a seven month period, topics examined include the environment and natural resources, tourism and the economy, government, education, military, the law and judiciary, emergency management, arts and culture, health and human services, as well as leadership skill development.

 Leadership Monroe County offers an unparalleled opportunity for community leaders to experience and learn alongside a dedicated, committed group of peers, and through their engagement measurably increase their future impact within the community.

Established in 1992 as a program by the Key West Chamber of Commerce. LMC continued to evolve and after several years, transitioned to be under the aegis of the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys, as its prime and distinct leadership program to foster greater, county-wide impact. As of Class XX, LMC became its own, independent, IRS recognized, 501(c)3 non-profit charitable educational organization.

Since its inception, over 500 community leaders have participated in the program, and helped to fulfill its mission of building a better community in which to live, work and play.
