Event Spotlight

Shareholder or Stakeholder. . .  What's Your Bottom Line?
CEO's from the national Business Roundtable recently committed to leading their companies for the benefit of all stakeholders. Followers of economist Milton Friedman believe that companies' only obligation is to maximize shareholder value. Will performance, innovation and competitive ethics suffer if shareholder capital is diverted? Can the answer be both?  Where do you stand?
Dinner and our esteemed panelists should provide thought-provoking perspectives. 
Join us -  February 27, 2020 at Cox Enterprises   
6PM - Networking and Dinner, 7PM - Panel Discussion


Community Connections

Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce

This month we're introducing an occasional new feature - spotlighting a Sandy Springs nonprofit.  The  Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce (SSPC), led by CEO and President Tom Mahaffey, Class of 2017, champions not only the business community, which is a global leader in the Metro Atlanta market, but all who invest in making Sandy Springs a great place to live, work, learn and play. It's no surprise that so many current and former Chamber board members, ambassadors, council and committee chairs, as well as Chamber members, are LSS alumni.

Click below to view the Chamber's new 2020 Guidebook.  It's an invaluable resource for everything you want to know about our community - with special thanks for page 52 which features Leadership Sandy Springs and Youth Leadership Sandy Springs! Check out all the opportunities to be involved in our community through the Chamber too - pages 13-14. Connecting community - one of the things we do!


Mellody Hobson - Investment expert In this engaging, persuasive talk, Hobson makes the case that speaking openly about race — and particularly about diversity in hiring -- makes for better businesses and a better society.
Each month we post a video the current LSS classes are watching, so whether we're emerging or experienced leaders, we can all benefit and learn together.
