Twenty women and men make up the 2022 class of Leadership Northwest Missouri, an annual series of sessions that bring together existing and emerging leaders from throughout a 19-county region to discover and sharpen their leadership skills, explore regional issues, and build a network of contacts throughout Northwest Missouri.

The 2022 class began with a two-day retreat, January 19 and 20, at Conception Abbey. The participants will gather monthly for day-long sessions in varied locations throughout the region. The series concludes with a July 14 graduation celebration in Jamesport, Missouri.

Members of the 2022 class and the 14 counties they represent are Amy Alexander, Atchison County; Kasi Norris, Buchanan County; Abbie Backes, Brittany Higgins, Carroll County; Matt Barry, Clay County; Curtis Prussman, Daviess County; Amy Ford, DeKalb County; Marissa Spillman, Gentry County; Scott Sharp, Grundy County; Ashton Vandivert, Harrison County; Jeremy Jackson, Holt County; Jim Skipper, Corinne Watts, Livingston County; Kelli Hagey, Marsha Martin, Dr. Brooke McAtee, Kendra Pickering, Brett White, Nodaway County; Joni Oaks, Sullivan County; Meggan Brown, Worth County.

Leadership Northwest Missouri has become the catalyst for identifying, training, and connecting the leaders of our region and is a pathway for effective leadership for generations to come. There is a deliberate focus on fostering a sense of ownership for the region – that the participants have interdependent roles and depend on each other for the progress and success of Northwest Missouri.
