Leadership Kansas is excited to host the 2020 LK Leadership Summit once again. This annual event brings together LK alumni from across Kansas and the country. It also is the first time the newest LK class is introduced publicly. The 2020 summit will be Friday, April 24th at the Oread Hotel in Lawrence.

This year’s summit will feature the introduction of the LK Class of 2020 and keynote speaker Marek Gootman from the Brookings Institution. As a nonresident senior fellow at the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, Marek focuses on bridging think tank perspective with real world action to increase the vitality of cities and metropolitan areas.

Following the summit, the Grand Reception will give LK alumni an opportunity to catch up with classmates and meet the 2020 LK Class.
