Leadership Northwest Missouri was created in 1999 to bring together up-and-coming leaders from throughout the region to hone their leadership skills, explore regional issues and gain a network of contacts throughout the region.
Leadership Challenge skills are taught using a blend of classroom presentations and experiential exercises. In-depth examinations of such regional issues as workforce development, education, economic development, healthcare, infrastructure and the political process round out each program day. Sessions are held monthly in various communities throughout the region.
Class members are selected based on their commitment to the region and leadership potential. The application for the Leadership Northwest Missouri Class of 2017 is now available online at https://leadershipnorthwestmissouri.org/program-information.
