Business logo for Hutchinson Leadership Institute

We are excited to announce the Hutchinson Leadership Institute is back for its 32nd year! The Hutchinson Leadership Institute is hosted by the Hutchinson Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism. This comprehensive program is designed to build community leaders. Over the period of nine months, participants will experience 10 days of training and classes. Each participant will be assigned to a group service project, which will assess community needs, determine a project, and facilitate the project working with other community members and/or groups.

Once you have completed the Leadership program, you can participate in Leadership 2.0!  The 2.0 program takes a deeper dive into personal leadership and how it can impact the future of the entire community.
