46 to participate in Leadership Anne Arundel Flagship Class of 2022

Leadership Anne Arundel (LAA), the premier leadership training and networking institute in Anne Arundel County, has announced the Flagship Program Class of 2022.

Flagship is the core Leadership Anne Arundel program.  It includes an intense curriculum of civic information and leadership skills development. The class is composed of forty-six participants representing a cross-section of the Anne Arundel County community, representing our ethnically, socially, economically, and geographically diverse population.

The ten-month program kicked off on Thursday, September 9th at Historic London Town & Gardens with a two-day opening retreat. Following the retreat, participants will build community knowledge meeting for one full day each month. Session topics include Government, Economic Development, Cultural Arts, Education & Technology, Health & Human Services, Law & Public Safety, Environment and Agriculture/South County.

Participants are introduced to critical regional issues, meet and discuss issues with leaders from the public, private and non-profit sectors, and identify areas of community need and methods required to succeed as community leaders.  Throughout the program, participants gain an understanding of what constitutes leadership, as well as an introduction to the infrastructure, natural resources, and current political issues of Anne Arundel County.

According to President & CEO, Kris Valerio Shock, “We could not be more proud to introduce a remarkable mix of forty-six public, private, for profit, government, non-profit and citizen community leaders as the Flagship Class of 2022. We are excited to welcome them to the LAA community and pleased to provide an opportunity to meet this tremendous group of leaders at the Kickoff and Homecoming event.”

LAA Board Members, Membership, Alumni, and the public are invited to meet the Flagship 2022 class at the Program Kickoff and Homecoming event on Tuesday, September 28th from 5:30p – 7:30p at the Annapolis Maritime Museum.
