LSA48 Class Day 1: Serve With Heart

“Leadership is service, not position.” – Tim Fargo What happens when you bring 55 powerhouse servant leaders together for a full day of community service? They impact the lives of over a thousand local families. As LSA Class 48 has committed to integrating service into...


LSA was created in 1975 by The Greater 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 2,000 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 nearly 50-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.

Being a member of the Steering Committee has allowed me an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and connect with LSA Alumni in a fun and exciting way! Especially being a part of LSA45, we will go down in the books as the REAL Best and LONGEST Class EVER! I look forward to seeing what becomes of this great group of leaders in our future.
