Event Description:

Join us for our YP Virtual Monthly Luncheon, Wed., April 21, 2021, from 12-1 PM with Kurt Strand, President and CEO of the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, and his presentation, "What CoVid-19 Taught Me About Leadership."

Dealing with the CoVid-19 pandemic presented numerous challenges to our organizations, employees, safety, and financial sustainability.  As I look back over the past year, these challenges provided me new insight into leadership. 

Kurt Strand assumed his position as the President and CEO of the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in May 2017. In this role, Kurt leads the museum and aquarium’s mission to inspire stewardship by creating educational experiences where history and rivers come alive.

Prior to joining the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, Kurt held numerous leadership positions at McGraw-Hill Higher Education including Chief Product Officer, and President of McGraw-Hill’s Science, Engineering and Mathematics.

Kurt is active in the Dubuque community. He has served on many local boards including The Greater Dubuque Development Corporation, The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, The Dubuque Chamber of Commerce, Every Child Every Promise, and the Dubuque Chorale.

Kurt is a graduate of the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. Kurt and his wife LeeAnn live in Galena and have two daughters, Madelyn, a senior at St. Louis University, and Klara, a freshman at the University of Iowa.

The YP Virtual Monthly Luncheon is held on the third Wednesday of each month from 12-1:00 PM. Young Professionals of Dubuque (YPD) current membership is over 2,300 members. YP luncheons feature a presentation on professional, personal, or community development.
