Leadership Maryland is an independent, educational leadership development organization. The 18th graduating class was comprised of Maryland executives from both the private and public sectors. The participants engaged in a variety of experiences aimed at informing them about the most critical issues affecting the state and the region, and preparing them to act as future advocates for the state.
"… Having the opportunity to engage and interact with leaders who are on the front line every day, has prepared these individuals to be the catalyst for positive change in Maryland," said Leadership Maryland Board Chairwoman Sharon R. Pinder. A 1998 graduate of the program, Pinder is president and CEO, The Pinder Group, LLC, Clarksville, Md.
