Leadership Flathead was organized in 1990 by the Kalispell Chamber with the vision of creating a core of knowledgeable and skilled leaders committed to making the Flathead Valley the best it can be. Since then, more than 700 individuals have completed the Leadership Flathead program, most of whom still reside in the Flathead Valley. They provide skilled leadership to our community through service in elected office, government committees and boards, and on nonprofit boards throughout the Flathead Valley.



For the Flathead Valley to be a viable, prosperous community comprised of engages and informed citizens, connected organizations, and skilled leaders.



Leadership Flathead operated with the following five goals in mind
To identify and motivate emerging and existing leaders
To acquaint those leaders with community information
To improve communication between present and future leaders of the Flathead Valley
To supplement the leadership development training received by participants in order to maximize their contribution to the community
To connect the leadership training with the actual practice of regional stewardship
