Chamber recruiting for Leadership QC participants  

Quad CIties Chamber

The Quad Cities Chamber now is accepting applications for its second cohort of Leadership QC, a leadership development program that builds skills and drive within area professionals seeking to play a larger role in the region’s success.

The chamber launched Leadership QC in January 2022 to cultivate a generation of leaders who are connected and inspired to make the Quad Cities region a community all citizens are proud to call home.

“We seek leaders who envision what our region can be and feel called to action on a greater scale,” said Mark Holloway, the chamber vice president of talent & inclusion. “These are the leaders who will move the Quad Cities into the future.”

He added that Leadership QC is rooted in these core values: regionalism, leadership in action, dedication, inclusion and belongingness, responsibility and collaboration.

The nine-month program enhances leadership skills and focuses on corporate social responsibility, providing a blueprint for how the members can work collaboratively to address social issues facing our community, and therefore, its businesses. It orients QC professionals who already are leaders in business, government and nonprofit organizations to the challenges facing our region. They will work together to create innovative approaches to solution-finding and support.

During once-a-month meetings, members will hear from nonprofit and community leaders, participate in guided discussions and identify pathways to build solutions. They will gain a broader perspective, collaborative approach and deeper commitment to the role they can play in building a prosperous regional economy where all can thrive.

Leadership QC is facilitated by Iman Consulting, based in the Quad Cities. The 2022 Leadership QC cohort ended its last session Sept. 22.

Tuition for the nine-month program is $2,500 and space is limited to 25 participants. 

Leadership QC applications are available here. The deadline to apply is Nov. 30. Chamber membership is not required to participate.
