Timeless Principles. Leaders in Action.
The Leadership Program of the Rockies (LPR) trains emerging leaders in America's founding principles--why they were important in the beginning and how they apply to the challenges of today.
Then it teaches and fine-tunes the leadership skills necessary to impact public policy.
LPR graduates choose liberty. They become a force for the timeless principles we cherish. In fact, LPR alumni have become local and national elected officials, top state leaders, federal judges, presidential cabinet members, and prominent movers in the arenas of political process, policy change, business and education.
The LPR experience is more than a one-time seminar or conference. Comprising nine full-day sessions and multiple events throughout the year, the organization is designed to have nothing less than an enduring impact on the knowledge and capabilities of its graduates -- and, fundamentally, on the preservation of the American idea.
Classes are limited to sixty-five high-caliber students selected from legal, economic, business, political, nonprofit and civic professions into a nine-session curriculum led by an elite team of local leaders and nationally recognized experts.
The result is the knowledge, tools and skills to preserve liberty.
Our December 2017 Alumni Spotlight is Brad Beck, an individual who truly understands what it means to empower individuals to advance freedom
Brad is a graduate of the LPR class of 2009 and was a Defenders of Capitalism™ competition finalist. Upon finishing LPR, he set out to achieve a bold ambition—start a Toastmasters International chapter that would focus on developing the skills needed to articulate the principles of freedom. Brad recruited twenty-one LPR classmates and alumni, and together they chartered the first chapter of Liberty Toastmasters in the summer of 2009.
Not content to stop with one club, Brad has gone on to charter three more Liberty Toastmasters clubs around the state. Thanks to Brad’s efforts there are now clubs in Denver, Longmont, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction. Countless LPR graduates and community members passionate about freedom have benefited from the public speaking and leadership skills provided by Liberty Toastmasters.
For all of his efforts and success, Brad received the prestigious 2015 Leader in Action Award at the LPR Retreat.
Outside of Liberty Toastmasters, Brad is the National Sales Manager at Design Master Color Tool, Inc. He is also a lifetime member of the Optimist Club of Erie, and serves on the LPR Advisory Council.
