Selection process


How does the selection process work?


Once nominations have been received, we invite nominees to apply for the upcoming Leadership Kansas class. Applicants should demonstrate an increasing level of responsibility, potential for continual leadership in Kansas, and evidence of professional and personal improvement since completing their formal education. Work experience, scope of personal interests, level of community involvement, and recognition of leadership abilities through receipt of honors/awards may also have a significant impact in the selection process.

A total of 40 participants will be selected for the program. An independent committee will make the selections in March. The selection process is designed to provide a class that is representative of the diverse elements of our state.

All applicants not selected for this year's program may apply for a future Leadership Kansas program year.
