Leadership Lafayette was established in 1987 to prepare a diverse group of professionals for leadership positions in the community. The program lays the groundwork for a well-rounded understanding of the community, sparks community involvement, and exposes participants to a variety of community leaders, new opportunities, and leadership skills.
The program focuses on topic areas such as education, city and state government, economic development, arts and culture, and social services. Graduates leave the program with first-hand knowledge of the issues facing our region and the potential for a positive civic-engagement.
The eleven-month program begins with a two-day retreat in February. From March – November, the class devotes an entire day each month for discussion with community and business leaders, trips throughout the community, and engaging exercises pertinent to the program topics.
LIA is a non-profit dedicated to a mission of building community through leadership. Founded as an executive leadership program to provide civic and professional leaders with an in-depth view of their community, LIA is constantly evaluating new opportunities to improve the leadership capacity throughout Acadiana.
