Leadership Fauquier has extended the application deadline for its 2021-22 class to Wednesday, June 30.
The nonprofit organization conducts a 10-month program “that broadens an understanding of what makes this county tick,” Executive Director Sandra Roszel said. “ Participation enhances leadership skills and enables participants to develop invaluable relationships. This unique program exemplifies the mission of Leadership Fauquier to create a thriving community through informed and connected leaders. “
Participants delve deeply into Fauquier County government, education, health and human services, planning and development, arts and entertainment and the environment. They receive leadership development training with an emphasis this year on conflict resolution and communication. Graduates then join an alumni organization that contributes to the success of the community.
Founded in 2016, the program is open to those who live or work in Fauquier County and have done so for at least one year. Participants are selected from government, private, business, non-profit and the community at large.
