Leadership in Public Service


KLC encourages more Kansans to exercise leadership for positive community change by taking an active part in civic life. While anyone can lead at any time, individuals serving in state or county government, city councils, education boards and other community advisory boards have a special opportunity to mobilize others and make a greater impact for the greater good of the communities we share.

Leadership in Public Service

To maximize their ability to influence the civic landscape for the common good, we believe it is critical for civic officials across the state to work together and support one another, share leadership learnings and best practices.

That’s why we started Leadership in Public Service to support elected and appointed officials in Kansas. Join us for an upcoming virtual discussion – these events provide a container for you to share success stories, inspire others and learn from each other.

Kim Gronniger wrote in our civic leadership magazine, The Journal, that many KLC alumni across party lines serve in state government. We have a list of hundreds of KLC alumni serving in elected and appointed roles.
