Leadership Development Program

Each year SMACNA-Kansas City asks for nominations from it’s members to participate in the Leadership Development Program as described below. Initially this program was utilized to develop the minority leadership talent within our industry, however; this year SMACNA-KC plans to open the program up to any of our young talented individuals that show the promise of leadership in the industry.
