Leadership 20 Nominations and Acceptance

Candidates for the Leadership 20 program are most often nominated by a senior-level leader in their firm who has a vested interest in the professional development of the nominee.  In addition, individuals may also nominate themselves or be nominated by a Leadership 20 alumni outside their firm who knows them though their professional network. Candidates are required to complete an online application and submit their resume for consideration.  A committee of executives reviews all applications and selects 20 students to participate in the upcoming Leadership 20 class. 

Nominations for the 2020 Leadership 20 class are now open and will close on Friday, July 10th.

Participants will be contacted regarding acceptance on August 1.

COVID-19 Update

Given current circumstances, you may be wondering what L20 might look like. ACG Denver is dedicated to keeping our community safe amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Participants and alumni consistently say the networking and people interactions are one of the most valuable aspects of L20. We’ll be getting creative to keep participants safe, while offering meaningful opportunities to engage L20 classmates and alumni.

We also intend to conduct sessions in person while adhering to local and national restrictions and recommendations, which could include some or all of the following protocols:

  • Social distancing
  • Limiting the number of in-person participants
  • The use of facial coverings
  • Access to hand sanitizer
  • Reminders to frequently wash hands
  • Health or temperature checks as required

Some participants may not be comfortable meeting in person. To accommodate this, we will also have a virtual option available.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
