Leadership Jefferson City

Leadership Jefferson City has been a vital program at the Chamber for more than 30 years.  Over 900 people have graduated from this program and gone on to be active leaders within our community. 

Leadership Jefferson City is designed to identify and motivate emerging leaders, and to develop their potential for community leadership roles by exposing them to the opportunities, realities and challenges of the community. The topics of the eleven sessions included team building retreat with the history of Jefferson City, arts & recreation, diversity, education, health & wellness, industry, local government, media, state government, technology and volunteerism.

The applications are available in November and a Steering Committee will review the applications and select the participants in December. Only 30 people are selected to participate in this six month program.  Sessions start in January and run through June. 

For more information, please call Dana Struemph, 638-3589. To be on the mailing list for the next class, contact danastruemph@jcchamber.org.

 Class Representative Testimonial 

 "I am beyond thrilled that I was chosen to participate in Leadership Jefferson City 2018! As a transplant to the   Jefferson City community, I learned so many amazing things about our community. I also have made some of the   greatest friendships/connections with fellow classmates. The knowledge you gain about your community is   priceless. It was such a great experience, I would recommend it to any individual that aspires to be a part of their   community or if you just wish to learn more about your community."
