Iowa State partners with Keokuk chamber to grow young leaders

Greater Keokuk Young Professionals

The Greater Keokuk Young Professionals organization is alive and well, thanks to the Keokuk Area Chamber of Commerce, ISU Extension and Outreach, and young local leaders. This partnership is equipping the community to “grow its own” leadership capacity instead of importing talent from outside.

In its first year, the organization grew to more than 60 members, obtained corporate sponsors, set up a Facebook page, and organized social events and leadership development opportunities.
