Leadership South Kansas City

Registration for the Class of 2020 is NOW OPEN!

Leadership South Kansas City (LSKC) is a program of the South Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. It was first put on the drawing board in 1991, and a dedicated committee of South KC Chamber members worked diligently for sixteen months until February 1993, when the first Leadership South KC class was inaugurated.

The purpose of the LSKC program is to provide an educational forum for participants to learn about issues facing the greater Kansas City at large and find ways to bring that knowledge into their companies and into the South KC Community so we can all grow. We also strongly encourage and mentor participants to accept more leadership roles.

The LSKC program consistently has 14 - 24 participants each year from a variety of companies. A broad range of topics pertaining to Kansas City government, education, public safety, health care, transportation, technology, community service, entrepreneurship, small business, and more, are discussed during on-site tours at various locations.

COST:  Members:  $629 First Attendee, $609 each additional attendee
 Non-Members: $729 per person

Fee covers the cost of all program meals and materials.

“I have boasted about this engaging leadership class to so many people and even  presented my amazingly fun and educational experiences to my company’s upper management.  I have a newly-found appreciation for all the resources that Kansas City has to offer and now have a collection of fantastic contacts, including many new friends.  My company plans to offer this awesome leadership class opportunity to a  different lucky employee each year!”

“The Leadership Kansas City class is something that I would recommend to anyone who’s interested in learning more about Kansas City and what goes on behind the scenes.  I was able to gain a better understanding of how the city operates and learn more about some of businesses that make KC what it is.  The whole experience was well planned, organized, and FUN!”

“The LSKC Program was a great opportunity and fun experience for me to learn about the Kansas City metro area, as well as being a part of a very diverse group. I thought I knew quite a bit about what KC has to offer since I was born and raised here, but I quickly found out there is so much more! “

“Each class was a new and exciting experience for me.  Not only did I learn a lot about local businesses, the City of Kansas City, and State & City Government; but I also met great people that will be valuable connections that help build a strong network in the business community."
