Leadership Sioux Falls graduates 32nd class

Members of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce's Evan C. Nolte Leadership Sioux Falls (LSF) program will graduate Wednesday, May 2.

W. Tom Simmons, Simmons Presentations, will address the graduates and their guests. He will share lessons in leadership learned over his more than 45 year career in communications industries.

The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has sponsored this community development program for 32 years. It is designed to meet the need for active participation of informed and dedicated community leaders. Main objectives of the program are: to inform and motivate participants by providing information on community resources; to identify community issues and challenges; to interact with other community leaders; and to gain a sense of community trusteeship.

Leadership Sioux Falls sessions are held monthly October-May at various times and locations in the community. Session topics change along with the issues, challenges and opportunities. Core topics include economic development, public safety, human services, healthcare, education, non-profit volunteerism and quality of life issues.

The quality of the participants is the true strength of the Leadership Sioux Falls program. They represent the public and private sectors, and civic and community organizations in the Sioux Falls area. This year's participants were selected from 75 applications.

For more information the program, contact Kayla Huizing at (605) 373-2002 or Applications for the 33rd class will be available at in July 2018.
