Program History

Leadership 2000 started in 1986 and was led by Fran Aleshire who partnered with Major General Marc Moore, USMC (Ret.) with the hopes of creating a program that would address issues facing the region and develop working relationships within various cities. This objective required strong, ethical leaders who would bring about positive change.

Renamed to Leadership North County in 2001, the program was entrusted to CSUSM where it continues to operate today.
