Each year, approximately 25 participants are selected based on strict criteria. The criteria include: motivation and interest to serve in Lee’s Summit, potential or existing opportunities for advancement to top leadership positions, willingness to commit time and energy to complete the program, and full support of the corporation/organization that is represented. Throughout the year, participants attend day-long sessions focused on leadership skills, business and government issues, and the history and culture of Lee’s Summit.
The goal of Leadership Lee’s Summit is to accentuate our participants’ confidence, knowledge, leadership and interpersonal skills to become distinguished dignitaries in our community. Leadership Lee’s Summit is in session from September through May, and meets the second Tuesday of each month. Graduation is held in May.
By joining a CLG, businesses have the opportunity to multiply their exposure by educating fellow CLG members about their business so when the occasion presents itself, CLG members can promote each other.
