Now in its 36th year, the Leadership North Iowa (LNI) program continues to identify and develop future leaders in our community. LNI provides lifelong learning and networking by connecting you with emerging and established leaders. Participants will learn leadership skills and complete a service project for community betterment. Employers will receive employees who are more engaged in their community, have a greater appreciation of North Iowa, and are more committed to staying in the area.
Tuition for LNI is $395 for Chamber members or $500 for non-members, and includes a one-year membership to the Mason City Jaycees, instruction fees, study materials, refreshment breaks, and graduation. Tuition may be paid by the employer, sponsoring organizations, or by the participant.
Each participant is expected to attend class sessions held every Thursday from January 3 - March 21, with a graduation ceremony on March 28. Class times vary; most sessions will be 2-3 hours during the workday.
