This is Leadership Sandy Springs.
We are the nexus of the community, where business, government, nonprofits, religious and citizen leaders come together to learn, engage and participate to make Sandy Springs a vibrant place to live and work.
The cornerstone of LSS is our annual leadership class. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about Sandy Springs, hear from decision makers, interact with elected officials, business and community leaders while studying issues facing our changing community. Speakers and activities throughout the year also help participants develop their leadership skills. Those skills are then put into practice as class members work in diverse teams on community projects.
However, involvement does not stop there. We provide an extensive calendar of activities for our 600 alumni, continual networking opportunities as well as keeping them abreast of what’s happening in the community.
We are community builders. Look at the two major events we sponsor each year. In the fall, we offer Sandy Springs Movies by Moonlight, a free, outdoor family movie series. In the spring, we mobilize more than 700 volunteers for Volunteer for a Better Sandy Springs, a day of community improvement. That’s what distinguishes Leadership Sandy Springs.
The Board of Trustees is delighted to announce the appointment of Jan Paul, LSS Development Director and Class of 2013 Alumna, as the new Executive Director of Leadership Sandy Springs!
Jan will succeed current Executive Director, Carolyn Axt, upon her retirement at the end of the 2015 program year in June.
