Leadership Lake Houston is a program designed to grow and develop community leaders in the Lake Houston Area. Each year a group of 20 emerging and existing community leaders from businesses and organizations throughout the area are chosen to participate in the Leadership Lake Houston Class.
The purpose of the Leadership Lake Houston program is to prepare, tool and enable participants to make an impact on the growth and vitality of the community. To accomplish this, the class attends day sessions, once a month for eight months, to learn the current status and needs of various aspects of the community and will receive training for successfully serving on committees and boards. The eight day session topics include Quality of Life and Area History, Business and Economic Development, Government, Justice and Public Safety, Education, Healthcare, Social Services and Community Leadership.
Leadership Lake Houston provides an opportunity for area professionals to develop lasting relationships with Lake Houston leaders and their fellow classmates.
In addition to identifying the needs of the community, the class is motivated to take action. The program culminates in May with a graduation ceremony where the class is charged to put their leadership skills to work by getting involved, and eventually assume a leadership role, within the community. Each class is also responsible for completing a service project within their program year.
