What is Leadership Denton?
An affiliate of the Denton Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Denton offers a learning experience for experienced and emerging leaders who live or work in the Denton area. Through sessions about state and local government, economic development, non-profits and more, participants develop an understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing Denton. Further, each class completes a unique project designed to positively affect the community.

Leadership Denton seeks people dedicated to serving their community. Applicants must show a sincere commitment, motivation and interest in the community, and have the desire to increase their service to our community in key leadership positions.

More than 30 years after its formation, Leadership Denton continues to instill in its graduates a strong commitment to community service and provides Denton with informed, responsible, and committed leaders.


Our Mission

To help emerging leaders expand their skills, enhance their knowledge of local and state issues, and leverage their individual passion to influence positive changes in our community.
