Share |

We can't wait to celebrate the 2020 Flagship and NLA graduating classes!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are shifting the June 23rd event to a virtual environment on Zoom and Facebook Live AND looking forward to being together in-person at a later date at Live! Casino and Hotel.

The LAA Tribute to Community Leadership & Graduation celebrates more than 25 years of contributions, collaboration, innovation, and leadership of more than 1,400 graduates of Leadership Anne Arundel.

These leaders have transformed our community's landscape by serving throughout public, private, non-profit, and government sectors. This high profile event celebrates and recognizes the importance of their collective engagement and participation in the local community. 

Tribute also celebrates the graduation of the 2020 Flagship and Neighborhood Leadership Academy classes. Community stakeholders are recognized at the event with the Distinguished Graduate and Excellence in Leadership Awards and the Bertina Nick NLA Flagship Scholarship honoree is announced.

The LAA Tribute to Community Leadership & Graduation is a unifying event at the intersection of personal, professional and community leadership. Reconnect with classmates and develop new connections - Virtually!
