This program is over 20 years old and began as a way to introduce the new Sarasota City Manager and the County Administrator to the community. Over the years, the luncheons have expanded to include leaders from the business, arts, legal, educational and social services community.

The program runs from September to May and includes eight luncheons, hosted by key representatives from local institutions. Each event provides an overview of an integral aspect of our community and offers an opportunity to learn about the various resources available.

Welcome to the Leadership Sarasota County Class of 2017. 

TESTIMONIAL

LSC has been instrumental in helping me get to really know my community and what it's needs are. In addition, I have had the pleasure of getting to know many of the hundreds of other LSC graduates in our community and many of them have become close friends and business alliances. It has been invaluable in every way.
