ABOUT LSA

LSA was created in 1975 by The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce to help identify and develop community leaders and is now considered the premier program for existing and emerging leaders in the Bexar County and surrounding areas. The program, one of the first of its kind in Texas, has graduated nearly 1,900 participants and focuses on delivering these leaders an opportunity to develop an understanding of the promise and challenges of our community. The program goes beyond personal and professional development and, as its goal, educates and informs these leaders in the vital areas affecting San Antonio, as well as encouraging Chamber Business involvement and Community advocacy. In 1992, The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber joined to be a co-host to the program, enhancing the involvement and diversity of future classes.

Through the LSA process, participants gain insight from present and future decision-makers in both the public and private sectors and are better prepared to lead San Antonio into the future by using their broader understanding of our diverse community.

LSA class participants are selected from all segments of the community and must have demonstrated leadership and held responsible positions in their chosen profession. LSA seeks people dedicated to serving their community and applicants must show a sincere commitment and desire to increase their level of service by assuming key leadership positions.

In its 44-year history, LSA’s primary goal remains the same – to help mold sensitive, responsible and committed leaders and ensure a prosperous future for San Antonio.
