LSA seeks a diverse group of individuals dedicated to serving their community. The program focuses on delivering already proven industry 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 leaders in the vital areas affecting the Alamo Region, as well as encouraging Chamber Business involvement and Community advocacy.
LSA’s Mission: LSA is a partnership program between the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce with the goal of educating and motivating business leaders to become involved in the Chambers’ Councils and Committees, to be an advocate for the business community, and spark a volunteer spirit in our local community, boards, and programs.
LSA is limited to approximately 56 participants annually. Acceptance into the program is based on a subjective assessment of the information each applicant provides on their application as well as a second round in-person interview, if selected. The LSA Selection Committee is comprised of Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Leadership, as well as Leadership San Antonio Alumni who serve as Steering Committee Mentors. 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.
If not already a member of either sponsoring Chamber, a separate membership fee will be required which will vary upon desired level of membership within 30 days of notice of selection.
As a small business owner in San Antonio, I wanted to be part of the solutions in our community. Leadership San Antonio didn’t just give me memorable experiences, it also gave me some of my best friends that I hold close to my heart!
