Since 1986 Leadership Perimeter has been developing, educating and connecting leaders for our community.

LSS Timeline


Leadership Perimeter is the premier organization in developing and inspiring leaders to serve their communities for a lifetime.


We inform and guide community leaders to align their individual skills and passions to address community needs.


Community, Collaboration, Empathy, Inclusion, Learning


In 1986, the Leadership Sandy Springs (LSS) Foundation Committee initiated the inaugural class under the former Sandy Springs Chamber of Commerce, and the first class graduated in 1987. In subsequent years, Leadership Sandy Springs evolved as an independent professional, nonprofit 501(c)(3), committed to educating and inspiring members to take leadership positions in the community.

In 2005, the City of Sandy Springs was incorporated and many LSS members and alumni were instrumental in its creation and development.

Over its 35-year legacy, LSS has graduated nearly 1,000 class members prepared to make a positive impact in the Sandy Springs community.

In March 2023, 36 years after graduating its first leadership class, Leadership Perimeter announced its evolution from a city-centric to a regional program, with its new name: LEADERSHIP PERIMETER!  Our dynamic new program incorporating the communities of Sandy Springs, Dunwoody and Brookhaven, will continue to build community excellence and open doors for alumni through civic involvement and professional development.
