Leadership Fauquier will not select a class for 2021

Leadership Fauquier has suspended its normal program, deciding not to select a 2021 class.

Executive Director Sandra Roszel attributed the decision to “the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing.”

In its first five years, about 100 people have completed the 10-month program, which provides leadership training and in-depth exposure to Fauquier business, civic, educational, government and healthcare organizations. The program seeks to prepare future community leaders.

Rather than launch a new class for 2020-21, Leadership Fauquier will focus on strengthening existing alumni’s knowledge and skills will skills training, community information sessions and service projects.

“In keeping with our mission to create a thriving community through informed and connected leaders, Leadership Fauquier intends to invest in the Fauquier community by putting its resources into action,” Ms. Roszel said in a press release. “Those resources include a treasure trove of knowledge, fine-tuned skilled leaders, invaluable relationships and an informed and developed network of alumni.”

The classes normally meet once a month, September through May.

A private 501(c3) organization, Leadership Fauquier charges tuition of $1,295 per participant — often covered by donations and grants.
