As a prospective Leadership Southlake participant, you are embarking on a journey that will last a lifetime. This journey is a result of your commitment to excellence and leadership in your community, both personally and professionally. Although this passage is one that many have taken since the program began in 1989, the end result is unique to each graduate.
Leadership Southlake is a dynamic, fun way to learn about Southlake. Alumni include a variety of community and civic leaders. For 33 years, Leadership Southlake has introduced emerging and recognized leaders to the inner workings of our community through a ten-month program on topics that affect our quality of life. This course is also great for professional development, leadership training, and networking.
The 2023-2024 Leadership Southlake voyage begins with an opening orientation in August. It is followed by an invaluable full-day retreat in September. Through monthly sessions, you will learn:
• An appreciation of the City’s history
• Southlake’s strategic plan for economic development and transportation
• The breadth of community services offered to the citizens of Southlake
• The multitude of educational and cultural opportunities available
• The operation of local government breakthroughs and trends in health and medical services
The class will plan and implement a community service project that will serve as its legacy. The course concludes with a graduation ceremony where students showcase their advocacy project and are publicly recognized.
