Why Join?


Leadership Hereford offers a prestigious opportunity for those individuals interested in the leadership and welfare of our community.  You will meet new people, make friendships and create your own network that will benefit you in your career and personal achievements.  You will learn  valuable skills about leadership and teamwork that are highly sought after by many of today’s employers and civic organizations. 


Class begins with an orientation that includes special guests from our community and local government. Tours are also planned for the class to attend and learn more about our area. Some of the topics discussed in class are: city and county government, economic development, health care, community services, and the future of our community and region. When you complete the Leadership Hereford program, you will have attained the knowledge and experience in becoming a confident and effective leader.



Community Service


The unique leadership program will help create citizens that are sensitive to and educated about our local community.  By doing this, these citizens will develop goals for our community and ensure a strong foundation for our future. Each graduate of the class will benefit in becoming a confident leader in the community and have the potential to join various boards among our civic and business organizations.


“…The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.”
