Now accepting nominations for the 2015 Leadership Wichita class

Leadership is a word that we hear a lot these days. But what does it really mean and how do we develop it? It takes leaders with significant skills working together to address the issues facing our community. And for more than 30 years, the Chamber’s Leadership Wichita program has been working to identify, cultivate and inspire those emerging leaders.

Members of the 2014 class participate in team building exercises.
