Leadership Missouri, the premier leadership development program offered by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is designed to enhance the leadership skills of current and emerging leaders through an in-depth exploration of the state’s economic, political, and social issues. Among this year’s 34 participants is Cara Weber, Vice President, Business Recruitment at Missouri Partnership.
“In my role at Missouri Partnership, I am proud to be able to promote our state to the world,” said Cara Weber. “I am honored to be a part of the Leadership Missouri program to strengthen my understanding of our state’s assets while also enhancing my leadership skills.”
Participants will gain a better understanding of the diverse industries and people that make up Missouri’s economy through visits to Missouri communities and networking with government, business, and non-profit leaders.
The 2023 Leadership Missouri program kicks off on May 16 in St. Louis. The class will spend time in Chillicothe, Kansas City, Springfield, Jefferson City and Lebanon before concluding in Columbia in November.
“Since its inception in 1990, Leadership Missouri has helped hundreds of Missourians grow as leaders,” said Daniel P. Mehan, Missouri Chamber President and CEO. “Leadership Missouri graduates are serving all across our state as top business executives and managers, as well as in community and political leadership roles. The type of experience provided during Leadership Missouri is exactly what Missouri needs as we work toward economic growth opportunities that transcend traditional boundaries that define regions and industries. I congratulate every person selected for this exclusive program and I look forward to seeing their growth over the next seven months.”
The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the largest business association in Missouri. Together with the Missouri Chamber Federation, the Missouri Chamber represents more than 75,000 employers.
