Topeka, Kan. – The Kansas Chamber and Kansas Chamber Education Foundation Friday announced the 40 Kansans chosen for 2024 Leadership Kansas class.

As one of the oldest and most prestigious statewide leadership programs in the country, Leadership Kansas, or LK, is focused on developing and motivating Kansas leaders from across the state.

“Since 1979, LK has fostered greater awareness and understanding of statewide economic, business, and political issues among the leaders of our state. LK alumni have gone on to key leadership roles at the local, state, and national levels,” said Kansas Chamber President & CEO Alan Cobb (LK ’21).

“The Chamber and Foundation are excited to welcome the newest class and wish them the best during their eight month journey learning more about our great state.”

Leadership Kansas received more than 500 nominations for the 2024 program. After a thorough and thoughtful application and selection process, the selection committee made of LK alumni chose 40 individuals for the 2024 class. The committee makes every effort to ensure the class reflects the state in regard to geographic, ethnic, occupational, and gender diversity.

The 2024 program runs April to November and includes visits to Dodge City, Garden City, Hays, Kansas City, Kan., Leavenworth, Lawrence, Lenexa, Manhattan, Pittsburg, Salina, Topeka, and Wichita.

The class will interact with a variety of experts and community leaders through three-day educational training sessions. The diverse discussion topics include business, education, agriculture, public policy, societal health, economic development, and government.

“Leadership Kansas is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said LK Executive Director Aaron Miller (LK ’16). “Participants meet many of Kansas’ distinguished business and government leaders and become stronger leaders, better prepared to contribute to their communities and our state.”

Leadership Kansas has more than 1,600 alumni. Click here to see a complete list of the 2024 Leadership Kansas class.
