Leadership Spokane, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1982 by the Spokane Area Chamber of Commerce and a group of business and community leaders. Leadership Spokane offers a civic leadership training program in which the voices of all sectors of the community are balanced, with the clear understanding that the health of all these sectors is vital to a healthy Spokane. Today, individuals from a variety of professions, races, backgrounds and neighborhoods from all over the county compose the Adult and Youth Leadership class each year. Classes focus on Servant Leadership, “Spokane 101″ information and skills such as team building, systems thinking, facilitation, conflict resolution, envisioning and project management.

Message from the Executive Director
Leadership Spokane is moving ahead full steam. Our fourth annual Leadership Lights the Way Gala was an evening of fun, connections and celebrating our alumni. Proceeds of the night will directly benefit our endowment and support grants for the next class of students. The adult and youth class of 2015 continues to learn about their community, strengthen their class connections and bolster their leadership skills. Even as we close in on our June graduation, we are also focusing on recruiting the next class of leaders. Applications for the Class of 2016 are due 1 April. Finally, our Leadership Legacy Society is looking for alumni to join the ranks—we are excited for a planned alumni event this April when we gather for a community servant project and finish the day off with wine and cheese. Stay tuned for more as we look to build our alumni network.Leadership matters…Spokane matters…and citizenship matters. We are three decades strong and getting stronger. Our distinguished Board of Directors, my staff, Ms. Elisha Heath and Ms. Jaxon Riley, and I are committed to building upon our proud past for a fantastic future. Leadership Lights the Way!
