Leadership Dallas Alumni

ABOUT LDA

The Leadership Dallas Alumni (LDA) mission is to educate membership about significant issues facing the region and to encourage activism and engagement in the community.

Forty-six years and more than 2,300 participants later, the contribution and dedication of Leadership Dallas graduates has had an invaluable impact on our dynamic city. As a graduate of Leadership Dallas or a transfer from an equal standing program, you automatically qualify for lifetime access to be a part of the Leadership Dallas Alumni (LDA) program. As a member of the LD family, you are able to connect and engage with a diverse network of influential Leadership Dallas graduates who are helping make the Dallas Region the best place in the United States for all people to live, work, and do business.
