Leadership Institute 2021

Soar like an Eagle - Leadership 2021 now open for registration

Leadership Institute 2021 will be conducted keeping in mind all the COVID-19 protocols.

We will limit our class size to keep within the social distancing guidelines, should they still exist.

The months of January, February, and March will feature two class sessions so that graduation can take place in June. (Session Dates)

Due to the pandemic, we have rescheduled classes usually to begin in October to January.   


About the sessions:  While the basic structure of Leadership Institute remains focused on providing an insider’s view of the city and how it functions , we do keep it fresh by introducing speakers to address issues of current concern.

Classes will be held all over the city  Transportation and meals are provided as part of registration.


Refunds:   Due to the uncertainty we now face due to COVID-19, registration fees will be fully refunded for up until 2 weeks prior to the start of the session.

Past Classes have had a lot to say about the Carson City Leadership Institute

I will be (after I graduate) and already am proud to say how this has has been a pleasure, a privilege and such an experience for me, that I will be able to fall back on the rest of my life!"

“Our Leadership group truly pulled together to make a difference for our community with our project. It was very interesting in that it showed us the “inside” of Carson City, and what actually makes the city work. It sparked my interest in many different avenues one can become involved to make a difference in our community”
