This Newsletter is dedicated to you, Class of 2023!  The Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation and the 1,600-member strong Greater Missouri Leadership alumnae welcome you!

Ten years ago, I embarked on a journey, a challenge, if you will, with 28 women.  Impressive, intelligent, and dynamic in all matters and walks of life, we bonded as the Challenger Class of 2013.  Ten years later, that journey turned into friendships and opportunities to collaborate with professional women all over Missouri and beyond.   I am stronger, more courageous, and more compassionate because of the exposure to so many issues and opportunities that makes this the Show Me State.   

Class of 2023, I encourage you to be in the moment, eyes wide open for every session and the many poignant conversations you will share.  Invest as a participant and recipient of inspiration and practicality throughout this Challenge.  I guarantee you will connect long after the bus tours end.  Your perspectives will expand.  You will continue to meet new friends and cohorts from different classes in new and transformative ways.  Look forward to the send-offs, the hospitality suites, future retreats, the Women of the Year Luncheons, and other Greater Missouri Leadership occasions. 

We look forward to meeting you and we thank you in advance for your leadership and contributions!
