Over the holidays an email was written by our Executive Director, Eric Edstrom, issued from the Leadership Anne Arundel email system, endorsing a political candidate. The email was sent to 28 people. This action is totally unacceptable. The Board of Directors was made aware of this in the first week of the year and has taken decisive steps to assure that this never happens in the future. We apologize for this indiscretion to the people of Anne Arundel County, our LAA alumni and supporters, and to the other candidates involved in the political arena. Leadership Anne Arundel has long been proud of our non-partisan efforts to promote all aspects of our community and to help develop future leaders from all parties to work together to build and unite our community, not divide. We sincerely regret this incident and will be diligent to maintain the trust you have so generously shown toward us over the past twenty years.
Leadership Anne Arundel's mission is to provide people of diverse backgrounds with the education, resources, and networks necessary to become successful, proactive leaders.
