In 1993, the Indiana Leadership Program was founded by businessman Al Hubbard, political activist Roger Schmelzer and community leader Joe Hale to prepare qualified individuals for civil service and to generate a greater understanding of the government and political process.

Today, entering its third decade of operation, the Indiana Leadership Forum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to recruiting and educating some of Indiana’s most talented community and business leaders and preparing them for increased involvement and leadership positions in public service, public policy and citizen activity throughout the state.

The Indiana Leadership Forum provides class members and alumni an opportunity to network with professionals from across the state, interact with elected officials and political experts and increase their participation in the government and political process.

Over 420 Hoosiers have graduated from the Indiana Leadership Forum and many have served Indiana in a variety of important leadership positions, including: United States congressman; state auditor; state legislators; county commissioners and prosecutors; elected judges; Indiana Secretary of Commerce; state agency senior staff; Indiana Election Commission; Indiana Transportation Fiance Authority; county, city and town council members; and state, district, county and precinct leadership positions.
