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
July is a jubilant month for our organization as we reflect on the past Leadership year and recharge to give the Classes of 2017, youth and adult, our best! July is a month to celebrate America and the communities that come together to strengthen our nation. Leadership Spokane’s calling is building community. We thank our distinguished Board of Directors who met to discuss the next year, as well. Leaders reflect and we reflect on a positive year of building leaders one leader at a time. Our history is long but our eyes are not on the past, rather we remain focused on motivating each and every leader who we have the privilege to serve. We are equally excited to celebrate our youth program which is growing and growing. Leadership matters … Spokane matters … and citizenship matters. We are three-decades strong and getting stronger. Our distinguished Board of Directors and Ms. Ruth Reynolds, Ms. Jaxon Riley and I are committed to building upon our proud past for a fantastic future. Leadership Lights the Way! – Brian Newberry
