KSMU Leadership Circle

"Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others. It is the only means."
Albert Einstein

What is the Leadership Circle?

To stay connected. Members of the KSMU Leadership Circle receive special correspondence from the station, including invitations to special events.

To lead by example. Leadership Circle members are an important part of the KSMU family and unofficial ambassadors for the mission of public radio. The example these members set, as stewards of public radio in their community, is a priceless message to listeners across the Ozarks.
