The 33rd class of the Evan C. Nolte Leadership Sioux Falls program meets for the first time this month. Thirty-two individuals representing a variety of businesses, industries and non-profits comprise this year's class.
A signature program of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Sioux Falls uses the community as its classroom and is designed to meet the community's need for active participation of informed and dedicated community leaders. The goal of the program is to inform, challenge and motivate participants by providing information on community resources, discussing community concerns, interacting with community leaders and building a sense of community trusteeship.
More than 950 people have graduated from Leadership Sioux Falls and gone on to serve the community and the region in a number of leadership positions. The class runs October through May each year. This year, 82 applications were received for Leadership Sioux Falls 33. Due to the nature of the program, class size is limited each year.
Congratulations to the class members and their sponsors. To learn more about the impact of this program, see Noteworthy on page 11. For more information, contact the Chamber at (605) 336-1620.
