  • About the Program About the Program

    Leadership Shakopee is a leadership development program coordinated by the Shakopee Chamber of Commerce. This six-month program informs emerging and existing leaders about the critical inner workings of our community. Its focus is to inform and inspire leaders – and challenge them to make a difference through personal commitment and involvement.

    During the seven sessions, the class will discover the community’s strengths and challenges through a series of educational and hands-on opportunities, participants will come to understand the inner-workings of these components and how they contribute to the Shakopee area’s overall growth.
