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. The curriculum is continually updated through an ongoing relationship with the Kansas Leadership Center in Wichita.

The course includes an overnight retreat and 7 full day sessions. Sessions are held every other week and each session includes usable leadership skills as well as panel discussions with community leaders. Class members also visit various area businesses and organizations as a part of the class. The course work culminates with the selection and implementation of class projects.

Salinans Michelle Peck, Betsy Wearing, and Amanda Michaelis facilitate the class. 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. A community advisory committee oversees this initiative.

For more information, call Don Weiser at the Chamber (785-827-9310) or email him at dweiser@salinakansas.org.
