Leadership Carson City
Carson City Leadership Institute is one of the premier programs operated by the Carson City Chamber of Commerce. The first class graduated in 1989 and the program has been a success ever since. When looking through a roster of graduates, you will see familiar names, many of whom have gone on to public office or taken jobs that keep them in the public eye.
The program is designed to provide you with a detailed understanding of the inner workings of the various public and private elements that make Carson City unique.
The future of Carson City will be in the hands of the leaders who graduate from this program. We hope you decide to participate. For more information on this program contact the Chamber Office 775-882-1565 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Class of 2012 had a lot to say about the Carson City Leadership Institute
My leadership experience was informative and enlightening! I am excited to apply my experience so that I can enjoy more of what Carson City has to offer as well as get more involved in the community and activities that grow Carson City economically. Rebecca W. Jackson
I learned so much more about this great place I have always called home and now appreciate it even more! Milani "Lani" McKinley
The most important thing I learned through Carson City Leadership was how much in our community I was walking around blind to. This experience opened my eyes to the many facets of an area I’ve worked and lived in for many years, and made me aware of all the things we take for granted on a daily basis. It was a wonderful experience, and I gained a wealth of knowledge through this program. Eva O’Dell
Leadership really provided me insight into the city’s in’s & out’s. I would recommend for anyone looking to learn more about the city they live in Kyla Rios
I started the Leadership program knowing it would be the ideal platform to introduce me to the inner workings of the City where I grew up. I found out quickly, I knew so little about the town I’ve called home for 28 of my 46 years. I have always had a sense of pride and an appreciation for the beauty, history and people of Carson City. I gained a deep appreciation for those working in and leading City government, what a motivated and dedicated group. I learned this town has so many people that give their time and money to help those in need. I’m not sure what lies ahead for me and my community involvement, but I do know I will not be a bystander. Leadership gave me the foundation so I can now effectively contribute to an even better Carson City. I wholeheartedly recommend the Leadership program to anyone that cares enough to get involved and to those that want to meet a diverse group of fascinating classmates and presenters. The Chamber staff made it easy on us “students” to leave our places of work one full day per month. The program is well organized, punctual and they make it fun to be there. Leadership is a fantastic investment of your time. Patrick Tatro
