Leadership St. Pete® (LSP) is pleased to announce the class of 2022. The second oldest of its kind in the nation, Leadership St. Pete® is a dynamic, intensive, interactive six-month experience designed to promote and enhance community leadership.
“We are proud to once again welcome a diverse class uniquely representative of St. Pete. This group of 39 business and community leaders is committed to the continued success of our city. They will spend the next seven months learning about St. Pete’s history and the challenges and opportunities we face. Through LSP, class members will deepen their commitment to and relationships within our community—keeping St. Pete a great place to live, work, play and visit for years to come. I am honored to lead this year’s class, and on behalf of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce and the 35-member, volunteer Planning Committee, to present the Leadership St. Pete® Class of 2022,” said Class Chair, Lindsay Petty.
