Who We Are
Nearly twenty-five classes have graduated from the program creating a membership network of more than 500 community leaders representing business, government, nonprofit, education, human services, and faith-based organizations. Graduates often go on to serve on commissions, committees and boards. Nearly one hundred community impact projects have been completed with the intent of leaving a legacy of service to the community.
Leadership Loudoun was founded by three partners: County of Loudoun, Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce, and Loudoun County Volunteer Services. Currently, it operates under the direction of an all-volunteer Board of Directors with one paid staff member.
What We Do
Leadership Loudoun provides four basic services to the community and its membership:
- A nine month leadership program is provided yearly to a group of people who live or work in Loudoun county for the purpose of developing a pool of leadership talent from which organizations may draw upon to meet community service needs. Participants receive formal training in important skills such as leadership and team building.
- The program provides an opportunity to learn about the county’s history, geography, political structure, economic climate and more. Explore many of the challenges and issues facing our fast-growing county and learn about ways to get involved in the community.
- Community Impact Projects leave a legacy to the Loudoun community. Working together, class members use the tools, resources and information they have gathered throughout the year to make a positive and lasting impact.
- Throughout the year, Leadership Loudoun offers social events and training programs. These events allow the network of members to meet and socialize as well as forge the bonds of a committed community.
