Leadership Southern Maryland (LSM) is not your typical leadership development program. As a 501c3 founded in 2008, we leave the textbooks and theories behind and focus on the unique challenges of the surrounding region—while providing local leaders with an experiential opportunity to collaborate, broaden their knowledge, and expand their leadership capabilities as they directly impact the Southern Maryland community.
“I discovered so many hidden gems and opportunities. More than that, I was able to hear perspectives and views on issues that I had not previously heard. The diversity of viewpoints and thoughts was invaluable.”
OUR LSM FAMILY

“[The Executive Program] made me more aware of what was happening in the tri-county area and how each of the three counties are similar in a lot of things but have their distinct differences. It also made me more aware of the biggest concerns for our communities.”
