The goal of Leadership Northwest is to identify, educate, and encourage emerging community leaders to use their leadership skills for long-term benefit of the community. When selecting the 2024-2025 class, priority will be given to those individuals who have a positive response to the following statements:


  • I have a sincere commitment, motivation, and interest to serve the Northwest Tarrant County community.

  • I have an occupational commitment to remain in Northwest Tarrant County.

  • I have an interest in holding public office or being involved in key volunteer leadership roles in the community.

  • I will be able to attend and actively participate in the monthly sessions that will be held on the second Thursday of each month from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

  • I will commit to assist with the planning/coordinating of two sessions of the 2025-2026 Leadership Northwest Program.

Rules & Expectations

  1. Attend each Leadership Northwest session. Be there on time and stay until the session ends. Mixers and receptions are optional, but they do allow you to network.

  2. Two excused sessions are allowed. If more than two sessions are missed, discretion will be used to determine if time may be made up the following year to complete the program and graduate with the next year’s class. If you are unable to attend, please contact the leader for that month’s class, John McIntosh at (702) 236-2235 or Randa Goode at (817) 501-0313 as soon as possible.

  3. Keep your Leadership Northwest experience confidential where appropriate. This will help speakers feel more comfortable to discuss sensitive issues more openly. In addition, certain experiences may lose their impact if shared with non-participants, and fellow classmates need to know what they say is confidential. Furthermore, you may hear about projects and announcements before they become public information.

  4. Complete evaluation forms at the end of every session. Your detailed comments and suggestions help determine future improvements to the program and will be considered in the planning of future sessions.

  5. Please limit interruptions for yourself and others during session tours by silencing your cell phones.

  6. Get the most out of your participation. When you are in a leadership session, focus your energy by asking questions and speaking to fellow classmates and leaders. Prepare the day before by completing tasks at work so you can concentrate on the Leadership Northwest session. When possible, ride the bus with the group. This enhances the whole experience by keeping the group together and allowing more time to get to know your classmates.

  7. Leadership Northwest is here to focus on, and develop, your leadership talents. Be prepared for anything: long days, surprise occurrences, stepping out of your comfort zone.

  8. Don’t let the amazing experiences stop with you--recruit others into the next year’s Leadership Northwest program!
