Leadership Midland began in 1986 and was initially sponsored by the Midland Area Chamber of Commerce, Midland Daily News, Midland Rotary Club, and Northwood Institute. To date, over a thousand people have completed the program. The program is open to adults who expect to serve in leadership positions for the community. The Steering Committee, comprised of Leadership Midland alumni, begins their work in January to identify topics and presenters for the fall program. Class members are selected each spring and spend the summer months preparing for the participation in the program.
