Leadership Austin


Civic Non-Profit Organization


In 1979 Leadership Austin was founded—by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce (GACC)—with the mission of providing leadership training to those with a passion for Greater Austin. In 2002 we became a stand-alone 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, while sustaining close ties to the GACC. Today we continue to believe each of us can engage in collaborative, inclusive, and sustainable leadership for our community.

Leadership Austin offers established and emerging business and community leaders a unique opportunity to be part of a group that has come together to:

  • Develop their personal and professional leadership skills;
  • Learn about the issues affecting Greater Austin through open and balanced civic discussion; and,
  • Build relationships with others who seek to find solutions to the issues facing our region.


We connect and develop leaders to courageously engage and transform our communities.


A future where all people and communities contribute to a better Central Texas.
