Leadership Muscatine kicks-off its thirty-second year this year. The group seeks people with drive and ability who want to enhance their community leadership skills and have an interest in serving in a leadership capacity in Muscatine.
The Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GMCCI) and Muscatine Community College (MCC), cosponsor Leadership Muscatine. Since its beginning in 1988, nearly 700 participants have graduated and significant numbers of class participants are still actively involved in making the Muscatine area a great place to live, work, and play.
Participation in the program requires a serious time commitment. With fourteen sessions plus a group project, the program requires between forty and sixty hours (over a seven-month period) to successfully complete.Participants, whether new to Muscatine or lifelong residents, will better understand the many different organizations and their leaders that work to make Muscatine great. Class members will build strong friendships with other future leaders and take up the challenge to get involved to make a positive impact on our community.
The 2019-2020 Leadership Muscatine class will begin their experience with orientation on Tuesday, September 24th, and will continue with two sessions per month concluding in April of 2020. The GMCCI will select individuals from the community on the basis of meeting the following criteria:
