Onward Toward the Next 50 Years!

Fifty years ago, a local lawyer, a businessman, and the President of the Chamber of Commerce came together to fill the need to grow and foster strong leaders to build a strong community. Fifty years later and Leadership SBM has molded over 3000 individuals to become leaders in St. Joseph County.

Today more than ever, our community needs leaders willing to create change when change is needed, to engage in tough conversations in a respectful manner, to know and to support communication and collaboration across racial, geographical, and socioeconomic lines.

Our community is STRONGER because of Leadership SBM, and our FUTURE leaders need your support.

Graduates of Leadership SBM programs truly bring positive change to St. Joseph County.
