Leadership Laurentian grew out of the Laurentian Chamber Emergent Community Leaders Committee. The foundation of the Emergent Community Leaders was to develop community through accessible education and community involvement through professional and leadership development.
The former program hosted Lunch and Learns as well as succinct programs for leadership development.
Leadership Laurentian is a nine-month program built to break down barriers and build up community through professional development and industry interactions. Our leadership program facilitates development of leaders who accurately and best represent the communities of the Eastern Mesabi Iron Range.
Session days are one day per month for the duration of the program. Each session is dedicated to one professional development session followed by an industry presentation and tour.
Our first program kicks off in September 2024.
