Leadership Southern Indiana

About Us

About Leadership SI

What does our region look like without strong leaders?

Thankfully, we strive to ensure that our area never knows. For more than 40 years, Leadership Southern Indiana has made it our mission "to engage, develop, and mobilize regional leaders who will serve and transform our community."

Originally comprising of two separate entities (Leadership Clark County and Floyd County Leadership), our forefathers saw the need to  identify and discuss the county's problems and needs. They worked to rectify a shortage of strong, diverse leaders within their communities. When the Clark and Floyd Chambers merged in 1985 so did their branches of leadership, creating Leadership Southern Indiana. By 2010

By 2010, the organization's governance decided it could no longer support the needs of the community through part-time work, and made changes to the direction of the organization. This was done by bringing on a full-time executive with  the support of a grant from the Ogle Foundation. In the years that followed, we rebranded our signature program to DISCOVER,  added a skills-based program called ELEVATE, launched our youth leadership NEXGEN program in 2013, and continue to provide the community with a single-day snapshot of our region through FOCUS.
Through continued development and growth we are what you see today, and we invite you to be a part of it!
