Though Kim Mangle grew up in Golden, she didn’t know the ins-and-outs of how the city functions.
Until she graduated from Leadership Golden.
“I came away from the class with new friends and connections,” Mangle said, “and a better understanding of what it takes to make our community so vibrant.”
Leadership Golden is a nonprofit program that consists of a series of seminars that span a nine-month period. The seminars provide opportunities for participants to increase their knowledge of the relationships between government, education, business and the community of Golden.
It “provides a link for all community members to gain broad knowledge about Golden,” said Golden City Council member Paul Haseman, who is serving as president of Leadership Golden for the 2019/2020 session, “and its many opportunities for volunteer service.”
Mangle is a graduate of the 2017/2018 class and will be the keynote speaker for this year’s orientation meeting in September. She is looking forward to sharing with the 2019/2020 class the positive experience she had in Leadership Golden and to “get them excited about what’s to come for them.”
“Leadership Golden creates a sense of unity and connection — we’re all there because we love our city,” Mangle said. “It gave me a stronger appreciation for what it means to be from Golden.”
