Odle Named Moderator for Next Class of Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series

Indy Chamber announced today that Samuel Odle, senior policy adviser for Bose Public Affairs Group LLC, will serve as moderator for Class XXXVIII of the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series (SKL).

The series teaches emerging community leaders how to address issues specific to central Indiana that affect the region’s quality of life, education and economic development. Each year, SKL selects only 25 individuals to participate, with monthly meetings that run September through June.  

As moderator, Odle will identify specific aspects of economic and societal issues for the class to study, and guide them as they interact with local leaders, professional experts and community decision makers to help class members better address these issues.

“I am honored to be the moderator of SKL’s 38th class, which allows me to personally give back to the community with gratitude for the lessons I’ve learned throughout my career,” said Odle in a release issued by Indy Chamber. “This class is being organized at a very critical time in our community. We can point to our many successes and be proud, but there is also a growing concern about what we, as a community, must do to reduce the chronic problems our community faces. These SKL participants are some of the future leaders that will have to find the answers.”

As a senior policy adviser for Bose Public Affairs Group, Odle works with clients on a variety of public policy issues, including health care and the life sciences. Prior to joining Bose Public Affairs Group, Odle served as the chief operating officer of Indianapolis-based IU Health and held the position of CEO of both Methodist Hospital and University Hospital.

Odle is a member of the Indianapolis Public Schools – School Board, works with the Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellowship program to develop future health care leaders, and is a member of FACHE (Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives).

In addition, Odle continues to serve on the board of directors for the Crossroads of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America and United Way of Central Indiana.
