Leadership Institute Alumni

Alumni Events

Whether it's graduation, lunch with your classmates, or a happy hour to welcome the new class there are lots of opportunities to stay connected and network with other Leadership Institute Alumni. Contact Greater Mankato Growth if your class is having one so we can post it here.

 

Leadership development does not end with graduation. In its 30 years the Greater Mankato Leadership Institute has provided comprehensive leadership training with a community focus to hundreds of current and future community leaders. Many of these individuals have indicated that the training was so valuable they would like to take it again. Now alumni of the Greater Mankato Leadership Institute (or its predecessor programs Leadership Mankato and Leadership Mankato Area) can participate in sessions alongside the current class. This is a great way to connect with other alumni and stay involved with the Leadership Institute. The cost is $100 per session and includes a full day of instruction, lunch and course materials. Continuing education credits are offered through MSU extended learning. Contact Shannon for more information.
