In 1992, 16 community leaders convened to lay the foundation for the future of leadership in Thurston County. Their objective was to develop a renewable pool of informed, skilled and engaged civic leaders committed to making the South Sound a great place to live, work and play. The result was Leadership Thurston County, a program of the Thurston County Chamber Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Beginning with first Class of 1994, LTC graduates have forged a community legacy. They serve as executives in their workplaces, board members of charitable and civic organizations, public officials, and community volunteers. Although they come from a variety of backgrounds, they share a passion and commitment for improving our community.
