APPLICATIONS for CLASS XXII will be availabe before the end of May, 2013 at this site.
On the wave of the 20th Anniversary of LMC, there was an over 50% increase in applications for the new class. We strongly encourage all individuals to continue their community involvement and interests and be prepared to apply for the subsequent class for 2013-14. Due to a limited number of positions in the Class, we could not offer a placement for all the qualified candidates.
CLASS XX GRADUATION AND LMC'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION was held at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key the evening of Saturday, April 21, 2012. Cocktails were served at 6 pm with Dinner at 7, and dancing afterwards until 11 PM. A memorable and fun time was had by all as LMC hosted a festive night of dinner, dancing, renewing old friendships, and making new ones!

Leadership Monroe County seeks to build relationships for constructive alliances among Florida Keys leaders. The program is aimed at residents who are active in leadership roles in the private sector, government, or nonprofit community organizations. Through a series of one- and multi-day sessions, participants examine fundamental segments of the local community and gather information to help them contribute to and make quality leadership decisions. Sessions held over a seven-month period cover topics such as the media, humanities, environment and natural resources (with a particular emphasis on the Everglades), tourism and the local economy, government, education, housing and land use, health and human services, military and the judicial system, as well as leadership skill development.
