Would you like to run for office someday? Are you jockeying for a promotion? Or do you just want to do good things for your community? Whatever your ambitions, Leadership Austin may have a seat at the table for you. Each year, this program accepts a cross-section of about 50 folks for nine months of leadership-building skills. If the fact that the program is run by the Chamber sounds a little too boosterish for you, consider that the program's yearbook of graduates reads like a who's who in Austin. Everyone from the mayor (class of '83-'84) to the small business owner to the gay and lesbian activist to the community volunteer has done time at this finishing school. Note to teens: There are special classes for you, too.
