A Message From Mary Cannon – Leadership Howard County Board Chair

Like the diverse individuals who complete the Leadership program each year, Leadership Howard County (LHC) is an organization that continually challenges itself to be better. Each year, awareness of our program grows, and this year the Class of 2014 is the largest in our history.

The projects pursued by this class will make a real and profound difference in the life of our community. It has been inspiring to see each class emerge from their Leadership experience with fresh ideas and energy to take their place.

When I began my term as board chair in July 2012, I already was aware that LHC is a special and important organization. Since that time I’ve gained an even greater appreciation for the organization and those who support it.

We’ve undertaken many initiatives to keep Leadership Howard County dynamic and growing as an organization. Our talented Steering Committee continually revises and improves our Premier program to make it timely and responsive to current issues. Our General Membership Committee creates outstanding programs that keep our alumni informed and connected. Each class year keeps connected through activities and projects, serving those in need or transforming the community in direct ways.

Looking forward, our goal is to create a sustainable organization that continues to serve the needs of Howard County. Our core purpose is to create a better community, and our graduates — who represent all sectors of the community — are challenged and inspired to make Howard County a better place to live, do business, raise families and envision a brighter future for all.

None of this would be possible without the extraordinary support Leadership Howard County receives from volunteers and the business, government and nonprofit communities. Our board of directors is an incredible group of diverse, talented and dedicated individuals with a commitment to service in Howard County.

I am truly amazed at the skill, dedication and commitment of our wonderful staff, led by Stacie Hunt. Together, we are committed to reaching out to the wider community; finding the unique places where our leadership will make a difference; and ensuring our organization stays true to its mission, vision and values.

Finally, we are very grateful to our many sponsors who provide the critical funds needed to support our programs. Thanks to all of you for your tremendous efforts and contributions.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at one of our alumni events or as a participant in one of our programs.
