About Leadership Rancho Cordova
Leadership Rancho Cordova is a program of the Rancho Cordova Chamber of Commerce with generous support of its sponsors.
In 2003, a group of concerned citizens at the Rancho Cordova Chamber of Commerce formed Leadership Rancho Cordova to address the growing need for a well-informed source of committed leaders. Rancho Cordova had just incorporated, becoming California’s 478th city and Sacramento County’s 7th city. The LRC’s first class of 14 was selected in the summer of 2005. In the spring of 2006, the first class graduated.
Since then, 164 have graduated from LRC. Each year, LRC has attracted new leaders and enabled people from diverse backgrounds, positions and interests to gather for dialogue, creative problem-solving, and social interaction. Although LRC is still in its formative years, it already has made a significant impact on the community. It looks forward to continuing to help shape the future of Rancho Cordova . . . one leader at a time!
Each year, the class chooses and works on a community project. The project not only benefits the community but it also gives class members the opportunity to use skills in leadership, cooperation, and problem solving. Although the projects are a one-time event, the 2007 class’s International Fest (iFest) and the 2008 class’s Movies in the Park were so successful that they are now sponsored annually by the Cordova Community Council and the Cordova Recreation and Park District.
