Now Recruiting for the 2024 Leadership Institute Class

Are you a community leader? Are you interested in becoming one? 

Now taking applications for Chamber Leadership Institute Class of ‘24

Community leaders take responsibility for the well-being and improvement of their communities. Are you a community leader? Are you interested in becoming one?  We just graduated the marvelous Class of ’23.  

There is room in this world for more community leaders. The model of one leader at the top with everyone else at the bottom just doesn't work for communities.  Many of our graduates have gone on to serve as elected officials, on boards of non-profits, and have become more involved in the community.  But, before you can become involved, you must know YOUR community and that is what we will explore together.

Testimonials from the 2023 Leadership Students

The Leadership Institute was such a wonderful experience! I’ve made lifelong friends and met many people who are doing great things and making a difference in the community. I always loved learning new things on field trips as a kid – this is the adult version, with a bonus of networking. The behind-the-scenes tours were fascinating; I was always excited to see what the next class would bring. Now, I feel so connected to Carson City, and I’m committed to making this town even better! Colleen Chapman

Carson City Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute was such an inspirational and eye-opening experience as it pulled back the curtain on not just the local government of Carson City but all of the things that make our city great. It was incredible to see how many passionate people we have working and advocating here. The relationships I developed with my classmates is just so invaluable. Chris Holland

I feel like I am walking around Carson City with a new outlook. I can see the passion and dedication from every person who I’ve met throughout this program. Haley Jones

This has been a wonderful experience and it was my pleasure meeting each and everyone of you. Thank you for making this happen, and I can’t wait to see my colleagues do something amazing with you and your leadership. Monica Kho

I would just like to say Thank You to Ronni, my fellow classmates and everyone involved in this year’s class for such a great experience. It is really the people in this community that make Carson City so special. Allie Lombardi

Learning networking connections, people, and organizations that I would not have normally encountered on my own…we need more kindhearted people like to you help us lead the way for the future and development in our community! Maria Menjivar
