The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce have announced the availability of a new online application for the Leadership San Antonio (LSA) program.
The jointly-sponsored program focuses on unique opportunities for leaders in the San Antonio metropolitan area to understand the promises and challenges of our diverse community.
For more than 40 years, LSA has helped shape future leaders of San Antonio. One of the first of its kind in Texas, the prestigious LSA program has graduated more than 1,000 participants since 1975.
Through the LSA experience, participants gain insight from present and future decision-makers to better prepare themselves to lead San Antonio into the future.
Selected members must meet monthly to experience the many aspects of what makes the business community, the City, and the County function.
“As co-chair of this next LSA class, we are committed to elevating the prestige of this program and enhancing the leadership experience,” says Angela McClendon Johnson, Director of Ambulatory Services and Clinical Operations for University Health System.
LSA class participants are selected from all segments of the community – public, private, large and small businesses.
“We are seeking applications from leaders working in all sectors of the community,” said Trey Jacobson, Managing Director of Government Affairs for Golden, Steves, Cohen and Gordon. “This program is especially effective for those who want to make a positive difference in the community and their workplace.”
Applicants must be dedicated to serving the community, while showing a sincere commitment to increase their level of service and a desire to assume key leadership positions. Applicants must also have a history of holding responsible positions in their chosen profession.
