The Evan C. Nolte Leadership Sioux Falls program will accept applicants for its 33rd class beginning July 11 through August 14. The signature leadership program of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has graduated more than 900 people since its launch in 1986.
Leadership Sioux Falls (LSF) identifies current and future leaders of Sioux Falls and educates them on the different aspects that tie the community together, with the intention of inspiring program participants to take action to make a positive impact on the future of Sioux Falls. The program is built around providing educational experiences, thereby helping participants identify ways they can serve and engage in active citizenship of this community in alignment with their individual strengths, talents and purpose.
The Leadership Sioux Falls program runs October through April, and concludes with a graduation in May. All seven sessions of the program focus on different facets of the Sioux Falls community and include topics such as education, local and state government, public safety, business and industry and service.
The Leadership Sioux Falls selection committee reviews all applications and selects 30 people to comprise the class. Applicants must be a current resident or employed in the Sioux Falls metro area, be over the age of 25, attend all required sessions and commit to serving and strengthening the community upon completion of the program. Previous applicants who were not selected are strongly encouraged to apply for the program again.
The program application, as well as a complete schedule for Class 33, is available at siouxfallschamber.com under the Programs tab. Applications will be accepted until August 14. Tuition is $495 and is non-refundable. For more information, contact Kayla Huizing at (605) 373-2002 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
