What is Leadership Sandoval County?

Leadership Sandoval is people committed to enhancing the quality of life in Sandoval County by improving their knowledge of the community and increasing their leadership effectiveness. Associates develop and refine their leadership skills through an intense, nine-month educational experience.

“Leadership Sandoval County has been a great experience both personally and professionally. I have learned so much regarding the infrastructure and operations of our city as well as the county and how it operates. I feel more connected to my community and hope to continue to represent it well with my current employer. The relationships I have built with the leaders and participants of LSC 2015 will be invaluable in my future growth as a leader and professional.”    Erin Johnson-Kruft, Central New Mexico Community College, Workforce Training Center –  LSC Class of 2015


“Leadership Sandoval County is a great experience both professionally and personally. It’s a one of a kind opportunity appreciated by all who have attended. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the surrounding community, the struggles, and many successes. The sessions are well thought out and the education received within the classes is invaluable and long lasting.
