Leadership Omaha

YOU ARE OMAHA’S FUTURE

We launched Leadership Omaha in 1978 to develop effective leaders who will strengthen and transform the community. A selection committee of program alumni and Chamber board members ensures that each class of 45 to 49 participants reflects the diversity of the community-at-large.

 
Deadline extended! Applications for Class 43 now open until May 31.
