Our Vision: Take Your Place!

Leadership Howard County is the critical force in preparing, inspiring, connecting and sustaining community leaders to make Howard County the best place to live, work and play.

When Leadership Howard County was launched in 1986, visionary community leaders built the foundations of an organization intended to help sustain the growing county. Literally in the middle of the exploding Baltimore-Washington metropolitan region, Howard County sought to maintain a community built on the principles of sustainability and inclusion. Leadership Howard County’s first classes included leaders of new businesses, newly created nonprofits and many others dedicated to working together to build a thriving community.

Like all communities throughout the country, Howard County now faces the challenges that come with a growing and thriving community.  There is a call for effective leadership on the local and regional level to ensure that citizens are informed and engaged in a wide variety of issues, trends and challenges. We strive to continue working toward our vision to be the critical force in preparing community leaders with the knowledge and connections to build a strong and inclusive community with each class and an ever-growing membership.
