Blackwood selected to participate in Leadership Missouri

Thursday, March 7, 2013

Randall “Randy” Blackwood, executive director of athletic and entertainment facilities, was recently selected to participate in Leadership Missouri, a seven-month leadership enhancement program sponsored by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He was selected along with 35 other Missouri business and state leaders to participate.

Founded in 1990, Leadership Missouri is an education program designed to enhance the leadership skills of current and emerging leaders through an in-depth exploration of the state’s economic, political, and social issues. Gov. Jay Nixon serves as the honorary chairman of Leadership Missouri.

Leadership Missouri is designed to help business, government and civic leaders better understand the diverse issues facing Missouri employers, communities and government. Over the course of seven months, beginning in April and ending in October, participants meet each month in a different Missouri city and focus on specific challenges facing that community and our state.

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry (www.mochamber.com) was founded in 1923 and is the largest business association in Missouri, representing almost 3,000 employers providing more than 425,000 jobs for Missourians.
