Jackson Walker partner Amanda N. Crouch has been selected as a member of Leadership San Antonio (LSA) Class 47. Organized jointly by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, LSA was founded in 1975 to identify individuals who demonstrate leadership potential and are active in community organizations that support San Antonio’s growth and development. It is considered the premier program for existing and emerging leaders in Bexar County and the surrounding areas.
“We expect to further equip and inspire the members of LSA 47 to embrace the opportunities and meet the challenges as San Antonio moves forward,” LSA 47 Co-Chair Jeff Arndt stated in a news release. “We all will polish our leadership skills, grow our professional networks, increase our knowledge of all San Antonio offers, and personally commit to supporting a variety of community causes and services.”
Regarding her selection to the program, Amanda noted, “I am honored to be selected for Leadership San Antonio 47 and to be a part of this phenomenal group of community leaders.”
Julia Mann, managing partner of Jackson Walker’s San Antonio office, stated: “The competition for a spot in Leadership San Antonio remains strong. The Steering Committee received over 120 applications and facilitated over 90 interviews before selecting this year’s Class. This is a very well-deserved honor for Amanda, and I know she will do a fantastic job representing Jackson Walker.”
LSA 47 launched with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday, November 30, 2022. Running through October 2022, the program invites the 67-member class to join Chamber Board members at monthly meetings, special events, and Council and Committee meetings. The class is also split into groups to plan educational events throughout the year on a variety of topics related to San Antonio. Through attending these meetings and planning their own programs, members experience the power of participation in politics, business, and philanthropy.
