V.P. Gaines joins the Leadership Missouri program.

Published on May 5, 2022

Linn MO – Leadership Missouri, the premier leadership development program offered by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is designed to enhance the leadership skills of current and emerging leaders through an in-depth exploration of the state’s economic, political, and social issues. Among this year’s participants is State Tech Vice President of Academic Affairs Mrs. Angie Gaines.

Since its inception in 1990, Leadership Missouri has helped hundreds of Missourians to become better leaders. The program consists of seven monthly, two-day sessions held in different regions of the state. While travelling to several Missouri communities and networking with the state’s top government, business and non-profit leaders, participants will gain a better understanding of the diverse industries and people that make up Missouri’s economy.

The 2022 class will kick off on May 17th in Saint Louis and will spend time in Kirksville, Kansas City, Springfield, Jefferson City and Warrensburg before concluding at the Lake of the Ozarks in November.

“Since its inception in 1990, Leadership Missouri has helped hundreds of Missourians grow as leaders,” said Daniel P. Mehan, Missouri Chamber president and CEO. “Leadership Missouri graduates are serving all across our state as top business executives and managers, as well as in community and political leadership roles. The type of experience provided during Leadership Missouri is exactly what Missouri needs as we work toward economic growth opportunities that transcend traditional boundaries that define regions and industries. I congratulate every person selected for this exclusive program and I look forward to seeing their growth over the next seven months.”
