A program established in 2009 to motivate and better prepare new and upcoming leaders in the Sikeston community.
About the Program
Vision Sikeston introduces opportunities, realities, and challenges of our community. The end result is a network of leaders devoted to understanding and improving the quality of life in our community. Individuals who have a genuine interest in leadership, desire to learn, and want to become more involved are encouraged to participate in this program.
During six one day sessions, each participant will have the opportunity to build on existing skills by means of seminars, training workshops, and tours. Key areas of interest covered are as follows:
- Health Care
- City Infrastructure
- Community Impact
- Business & Industry
- Economic Growth
- Leadership Development
Session layouts may vary but will consist of active panel discussions, educated speakers, exciting tours, and meaningful group interaction. Established community leaders and professionals from area organizations and industry will participate in class sessions with the goal to inform, inspire and provoke new thoughts and ideas.
In addition, it is also highly recommended that participants attend as many general membership luncheons as possible to maximize networking opportunities and to increase their community exposure.
Lastly, there will be an alumni/ new participant mixer that we encourage you to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get feed- back from previous Leadership Sikeston graduates. Participants will receive more information about this event closer to date.
