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. LSA will continue the legacy of leadership, education, and engagement and participate in powerful conversations to deeply understand strengths, as well as disparities and challenges in the community with the aim of harnessing collective resources to develop solutions that will have an enduring impact. The goal of LSA is to find pathways to connect to fellow business leaders in the community across a variety of industries and to give back to the Chambers’ efforts in Council and Committee work, policy initiatives, and supporting events.

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.
