NKY Chamber announces 51 members of Leadership Northern Kentucky class for 10-month program

The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce announced the 44th class of Leadership Northern Kentucky which includes 51 professionals representing businesses and organizations across Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.

A 10-month program designed to help develop business and community leaders, Leadership NKY utilizes the community as a classroom to help participants gain an understanding of the strengths and challenges of the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area, and the skills necessary to motivate and engage others in collaborative efforts to address them. Participants undergo a substantive education by industry leaders across a diverse range of topics, with sessions on topics including economic development, education, government, and human services, among others.

Since its inception in 1979, more than 1,400 alumni have participated in the Leadership NKY program to make a difference in the community.

Kenneth Webb of Republic Bank is the Leadership NKY Class of 2023 Chair.

“Leadership Northern Kentucky is a unique experience that will push our community’s leaders to get out of their comfort zones and embrace diverse perspectives on the challenges and issues facing the region. One step out of the comfort zone is one step into the learning zone,” said Webb. “The 51 leaders who make up the 44th class which is a significant number both in our region and our nation’s history are about to embark on an incredible leadership journey. I’m looking forward to witnessing these individuals develop as a cohesive unit and emerge better equipped to make decisions that will move Northern Kentucky forward and promote future growth within our workforce.”
