Leadership Maryland’s eight-month program is designed to develop community leadership skills for the betterment of the state. Each year, participants learn through a series of hands-on workshops, seminars, and debates geared around the economic, social and environmental issues that affect the state of Maryland. Together alongside current leaders, the group works to develop and foster ingenuity to inspire thought, action and deed toward solutions to further the state’s success. Since 1992 and with over 900 members, Leadership Maryland has promoted knowledge, interpersonal relationships and differing perspectives as the keys to developing the necessary leadership skills to grow the State of Maryland.
