Emerging Leaders is a leadership development program specifically for employees of CKMN and KCMN member companies.  The coursework was created based on the input and recommendations of manufacturers.  Currently administered through Johnson County Community College, our goal is to create opportunities for those want to:

•  Improve leadership, management and communication skills
