LSR Program

Information about LSR and applying to LSR is available on the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber website

Mission Statement: “The Leadership Santa Rosa program encourages greater community involvement by identifying and developing effective Sonoma County leaders who will help create a spirit of cooperation for the resolution of community challenges.”

Program Overview: Leadership Santa Rosa is an educational program intended to develop and equip effective community leaders via exposure to pertinent issues, broad thinkers and the richness of Santa Rosa and Sonoma County. The Program is designed to meet these challenges during a series of 10 full-day, interactive seminars. Each day focuses on a distinct topic, during which participants gain knowledge of the history, challenges and hands-on experience with important issues. LSR is a community education program designed to offer participants a broad perspective of the County as well as provide them with the tools to become leaders in the community. The LSR program features leaders with firsthand experience on how our community works as well as experiential, hands-on activities designed to help participants learn how the community might be improved.
