Leadership Salina

Leadership Salina has been offered in the community for more than 25 years, but was totally revamped in 2009, bringing together curriculum from the Blueprint for Leadership class formerly offered by the Greater Salina Community Foundation and Leadership Salina, offered through the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce. It is a program to develop leaders who will have the skills and capacities to move our community forward. Leadership for the twenty-first century includes a thorough understanding of the assets as well as the needs of their community. Salina’s community leaders must have skills and understanding, as well as a sense of responsibility, caring and compassion for others, the desire to serve, and to give back.

The program includes six full-day sessions plus a one day session at the Kansas Leadership Center in Wichita. Each session will include learning a new leadership skill or capacity, a community panel, and community tour. The graduation will include a celebration of class accomplishments.

Funding for Leadership Salina is provided by the Foundation and the Chamber. Scholarships and project grants come from the Foundation. Administration is handled by the Chamber. For more information, call Don Weiser at the Chamber (785-827-9310) or email him at dweiser@salinakansas.org.
