Leadership San Antonio Class 46 applications are now available by clicking here.
The application is fully digital and must be completed by the individual applying. We look forward to your submission!
LSA seeks a diverse group of individuals dedicated to serving their community. Participants of the program will be given the opportunity to develop an understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing the San Antonio area. This coming year, LSA 46 will be dedicated to having powerful conversations to deeply understand disparities and challenges in the community and to harness collective resources to develop solutions that will have an enduring impact. The focus will be on being proximate to the problems that we face as a city and towards each other, by surfacing the issues and doing a root cause analysis in order to create a more thriving city with lasting and systemic change.
LSA is limited to approximately 50 participants annually. Acceptance into the program is based on a subjective assessment of the information each applicant provides in this application, as well as a second round in-person interview, if selected. These interviews will be held in-person, following all current CDC recommendations related to health and safety protocols. If you are selected for the semi-finalist interview, you MUST be available to attend in-person during your designated time on:
Wednesday, November 17, 2021 between 8am – 12pm and 1pm – 5pm
The applicant acknowledges that attendance is MANDATORY during all class days, retreats, and class day planning sessions. Absence at any of these scheduled events, without advance approval from Chamber staff and the LSA Co-Chairs, on more than one (1) occasion may result in expulsion from the class, ability to complete the remaining class days, as well as lose an opportunity complete the program, without reimbursement of tuition and fees. Your participation in the program reflects on the LSA program itself, as well as you individually and within your organization. Please be mindful of the time commitment prior to applying.
Be sure to mark your calendars now, in the exciting chance you are extended an interview. The LSA Selection Committee is comprised of LSA Alumni. The selection is highly competitive with more applicants than class positions, therefore applicants who are not accepted are highly encouraged to reapply the following year.
