Leadership Loudoun Elevates Components of the Program Curriculum

Beginning with the Class of 2016, Leadership Loudoun adjusted its Program to replace the “Community Impact Project” with a “Think Tank” component.
The purpose of the Leadership Loudoun Think Tank is to drive experiential learning through application of a process. This process gathers different people with diverse expertise and encourages collaborative, creative examination of a community issue. The Think Tank Model serves to both facilitate objective and balanced examination of a community issue and to move beyond short-term or concrete solutions to make way for visionary ideas.

My Leadership Loudoun Story

Rusty Foster, President Bow Tie StrategiesI grew up in Loudoun County, so naturally, I thought I knew everything there was to know. We even learned about local history and took field trips to all of the historic Loudoun sites in elementary school. However, I was wrong. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to more than the history of Loudoun. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to the inner workings of the Loudoun County government, nonprofit organizations, and how our local economy depends on taxes and data centers. I choose to live in Loudoun County, to have my business located in Loudoun County, and to play in Loudoun County. I feel like after graduating from Leadership Loudoun, I have a better understanding of how to grow my business in Loudoun County and I’m thankful for that opportunity. And, I met some awesome people that are great friends today!
