The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Centurions program is currently accepting applications, now through June 2, 2014. Interested professionals around the Greater Kansas City region can attend upcoming informational sessions to learn more about the two-year program.

Established in 1976, Centurions was the first program of its kind in the metro. Over time, it has developed the reputation as an unequaled training ground for future leaders of Kansas City. Centurions are focused on building community awareness through civic opportunities and on community issues that affect Greater Kansas City.

  • The mission is to prepare a representative cross-section of the community’s emerging leaders for their role in shaping the future of Greater Kansas City. Task forces include topics such as entrepreneurship, diversity, arts and entertainment, and education.

“Centurions is one of the premier programs of the KC Chamber,” said Jim Heeter, president and chief executive officer of the KC Chamber. “Members of the incoming class will find themselves in the good company of some of our community’s key leaders and will have a vital role in the future of Kansas City.”

  • Applicants are selected on the basis of proven professional success and community engagement, as demonstrated through a written application, recommendations, and personal interviews. The program selects a group of men and women from diverse ethnic and professional backgrounds, each with strong potential as a future community leader.
