Prince George’s County Council Member Karen R. Toles (D) – District 7, is one of 52 Maryland leaders statewide chosen to participate in Leadership Maryland 2013, an eight-month program designed to develop senior-level leaders.
Leadership Maryland was created to cultivate the interest, statewide knowledge and leadership capacities of Maryland’s leaders. Founded in 1992, Leadership Maryland offers an intensive, issues-oriented, educational program based on the belief that knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership. Council Member Toles looks forward to participating in Leadership Maryland this year.
“As a lifelong resident and elected official, I have a great deal of pride in Prince George’s County and the tremendous work we are doing to help move Maryland forward. The opportunity to connect with leaders from across the state as a participant in Leadership Maryland is exciting. I look forward to making significant contributions of my own, learning from my fellow participants, and applying what I learn to benefit our residents.”
“The participants represent a broad spectrum of highly qualified individuals from an extraordinary group of statewide applicants,” said Nancy Minieri, founding president and CEO of Leadership Maryland. “After participating in a comprehensive range of experiences during this milestone anniversary year, these leaders will serve as important participants in the unified effort to shape Maryland’s future.”
Founded in 1992, Leadership Maryland is an independent, educational, non-profit organization designed to inform top-level executives from the public and private sectors about the critical issues, challenges and opportunities facing the state of Maryland and its regions.
