About LE State of the Eastside Morning Forums

Leadership Eastside informs, equips, and connects our community’s greatest assets – its leaders – to meet our community’s greatest needs.  State of the Eastside Forums represent an opportunity to bring together community leaders, stakeholders, and other interests to discuss a specific issue of community importance.

LE believes it is important to include a broad cross-section of stakeholders who have the ability to influence the adoption of community-based solutions.  It is equally important to include stakeholders who will be affected by the adoption of those solutions.

LE State of the Eastside Forums present a valuable opportunity for members of the LE Network to better understand important community issues as well as providing a safe place for stakeholders to convene and make progress in addressing those issues.
