Have you ever wondered why a single pipeline provides our water from Florida City on the mainland? Are you curious about our economic drivers, our county and municipal government, or the role of the U.S. military in the Keys? 

Leadership Monroe County (LMC) provides a series of in-depth, immersive one- and multi-day sessions, over an eight-month period, into the issues and policies that affect the present and help to determine the future.

“This is a unique program for residents who have active leadership roles in the private, public or nonprofit sectors in the community and who aspire to become more informed and effective leaders,” said Chuck Licis-Masson, LMC board president.

“The program offers an unparalleled opportunity for community leaders to experience and learn alongside a dedicated, committed group of peers and, through their engagement, measurably increase their future impact within the community,” he said.
