            Leadership Houston was founded in 1981 by the Houston Chamber of Commerce as its leadership development ‘arm’ in the community. The program has 50 participants every year, and through seminars and experiences that develop and enhance individual, organizational and civic leadership skills. Each month the class members are exposed to a different issue facing the leaders of Houston – education, the arts, social justice, health and human services, the environment, government, and the economy. Each member also learns more about his/her personal style and ways to use this knowledge to be more effective as leaders in their own organizations as well as the broader Houston community. In the current year of 2007-08, the only Indian-American who is participating in the program is Jagdip Ahluwalia, Executive Director of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce.
