Mission

Leadership Austin seeks out and prepares leaders for positions of public and private decision-making, and fosters community involvement and the exercise of civic responsibility.

Description

n 1979 Leadership Austin was founded—by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce (GACC)—with the mission of providing leadership training to those with a passion for Greater Austin. In 2002 we became a stand-alone 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, while sustaining close ties to the GACC. Today we continue to believe each of us can engage in collaborative, inclusive, and sustainable leadership for our community. Leadership Austin offers emerging and community leaders a unique opportunity to be part of a group that has come together to -- develop their personal and professional leadership skills; learn about the issues affecting Greater Austin through open and balanced civic discussion; and, build relationships with others who seek to grow as leaders and find solutions to the issues facing our region.
