Leadership Otero was founded in Alamogordo in 2001 at the direction of the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors in order to identify current and emerging leaders, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing our community. Leadership Otero is dedicated to the development of informed future leaders of Otero County.

The Leadership Otero Course is February – November each year, and graduation in December. For more information about Leadership Otero, contact the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce at (575) 437-6120.
