See what the 2018 Class said about their Leadership experience:
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
I want to extend my thanks to Carson City Leadership for the opportunity to be part of it. I have learned so much in what feels like so little time. Each session is amazing! 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! Jeremiah Jones
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. Dawn Beck
Leadership Carson City brought key elements of our city together with exposure to its dynamic leaders. I gained tremendous insight into the City and its history while improving my own leadership skills at the same time. Kris Wickstead
Leadership not only exposed me to a new perspective of our community here in Carson City, but to remarkable people that I will forever share the memories of this experience. Taylor Radtke
To be a part of the community, you need to learn what is in our community. This has been the best opportunity to learn about Carson City from government to services. Christine Butson
A tremendous program. I would have never know (or guessed) the truly amazing things going on in Carson City. Made me even more proud to call this community home. Jason Woodbury
Leadership provided a behind the scenes in depth view of the city which opened my eyes to new opportunities to lead. Tina Nelson
Every day of it was interesting. John Wilkinson
I really enjoyed being in the Leadership program. Going “behind the scenes” in Carson City is the best way to truly learn about the city’s government, parks, etc. I also met some wonderful people and had some experiences that I will never forget. Roberta Harris
The lessons and experiences gained through Leadership class have generally reinforced my intent to keep my family here as a place to establish our family legacy. Howard Houghton
