Tradition Continues: Kansas City Centurions kicks off

The Centurions program has trained thousands of young leaders in Kansas City. At UMB Bank, we’ve watched several associates grow personally and professionally through the program, and we are continually impressed with the caliber and commitment of candidates involved in the program.






Like many other major cities, Kansas City has several leadership programs and opportunities for young leaders to grow professionally and personally. One program UMB Bank is always proud to support is the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Centurions Leadership program.

For the past 42 years, the Centurions program has trained thousands of young leaders in our city and exposed them to new areas of the community they may have otherwise not been witness to. At UMB Bank, we’ve watched several associates grow personally and professionally through the program, and we are continually impressed with the caliber and commitment of candidates involved in the program.

The Tradition Continues
The class of 2020 recently kicked off its two years together. Class members undergo a comprehensive application and interview process, and are selected from a wide array of industries.

During the next two years, this group of professionals will foster a sustained passion for learning, service and leadership. They will also gain the tools they need to make a lasting impact on our community. The Centurions class of 2020 will continue a valuable tradition here in Kansas City.

Centurions Fill a Community Need
As a Centurion, classmates have a real opportunity to explore issues they care about most, gain exposure to new community service projects and learn first-hand from the region’s top leaders, all of which contributes to their life-long commitment to learn, serve and lead.

The business and civic community across Kansas City looks forward to working with each class year after year and counts on their commitment to leadership and service. The Chamber and Centurions have a long-term relationship that goes well beyond the two-year course of the program.

The Chamber Needs Centurions
A big goal for the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Centurions 2020 class is for them to increase engagement in the Big 5 initiatives across Kansas City. These include improved transportation, pre-K for KC, the new airport terminal and other civic and political projects.

As the class of 2020 begins its journey, we expect great things from them, and we look forward to working with everyone in the group to improve our amazing city.
