The Calvert Recorder - - Business Briefs -

Lead­er­ship Maryland, the pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gram ded­i­cated to building a better Maryland by har­ness­ing the strength of its lo­cal busi­ness and com­mu­nity lead­ers, is now ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the class of 2018, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease. Lead­er­ship Maryland’s se­lec­tion com­mit­tee will choose 52 ap­pli­cants to com­plete an eight­month hands-on learn­ing pro­gram fo­cused on the state’s most vi­tal so­cial, eco­nomic and en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open to se­nior-level ex­ec­u­tives with sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in their ca­reers and/or their com­mu­ni­ties. Ideal Lead­er­ship Maryland ap­pli­cants will have a de­sire to learn more about Maryland’s most crit­i­cal is­sues and a per­sonal com­mit­ment to be a force for pos­i­tive change in their or­ga­ni­za­tions, their com­mu­ni­ties, and their state. The cho­sen class will re­flect a cross-sec­tion of the state by in­clud­ing di­ver­sity of ge­o­graphic lo­ca­tion, pro­fes­sion, eth­nic­ity and gen­der.

“Lead­er­ship Maryland of­fers an eye-open­ing, hands-on learn­ing pro­gram that many of our alumni con­sider to be one of the most re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ences of their ca­reers,” said Renée Win­sky, ‘05, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Lead­er­ship Maryland, in the press re­lease. “We are search­ing for the next co­hort of our state’s most im­pas­sioned and mo­ti­vated lead­ers. Our class of 2018 will gain knowl­edge of Maryland’s chal­lenges, in­sight into their own per­sonal in­flu­ence and lead­er­ship abil­ity, and life­long ac­cess to a pow­er­house network of the state’s most in­flu­en­tial lead­ers.”

Com­pleted ap­pli­ca­tion pack­ages and reg­is­tra­tion fees must be re­ceived by Lead­er­ship Maryland (134 Hol­i­day Court, Suite 318, An­napo­lis, MD 21401) by 5 p.m. Tues­day, Oct. 31. Upon ac­cep­tance of the ap­pli­ca­tion, candidates will be con­tacted to schedule an in­ter­view with mem­bers of the Lead­er­ship Maryland se­lec­tion com­mit­tee. The se­lected class of 2018 will be an­nounced in early Fe­bru­ary 2018, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.
