The Leadership Council Southwestern Illinois’ membership includes over 250 top executives and decision makers from the five sectors we unite, providing a level of diversity that makes the organization unique. Cooperation and collaboration among our members and local community-based organizations have in many ways helped reshape Southwestern Illinois, strengthening our infrastructure, protecting and enhancing our major employers, building consensus on key issues and cultivating a positive labor-management environment. We foster relationships on both sides of the river, recognizing that our efforts have an impact that affects not just Southwestern Illinois, but also the entire St. Louis Region.
The Leadership Council Southwestern Illinois is a 501(c)(6) organization that is guided by a 17-member executive committee dedicated to moving our region forward. The organization’s work is supported by three full-time employees – an Executive Director & CEO, an Executive Coordinator, an Administrative Assistant, and a part-time Workforce Assistant – along with membership volunteers.
