EASTON — Qlarant President Sandy Love has completed Leadership Maryland’s professional development program dedicated to building a better Maryland by harnessing the strength of its local business and community leaders.
Leadership Maryland honored Love, a Cambridge resident, and the entire class of 2019 at its 27th annual graduation ceremony Dec. 10 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.
Love was one of 50 applicants chosen by committee to complete Leadership Maryland’s eight-month hands-on learning program focused on the state’s most vital social, economic and environmental issues.
“As this year’s Leadership Maryland cohort completes its program, their journey as a graduate of our state’s finest organization of professionals begins,” said Leadership Maryland Board Chairman Dr. Memo F. Diriker, director of BEACON at Salisbury University. “Over the past eight months, they have learned about our state, the critical issues it faces and, above all, themselves.
“On behalf of the board, I congratulate each of them for completing this defining milestone, and I look forward to seeing them apply these lessons to accomplish great things for our state.”
Leadership Maryland is open to senior-level executives with significant achievements in either their careers and/or their communities.
“This has been a tremendous experience,” Love said. “Qlarant has been a supporter of this program for many years, and I have been inspired by the program.”
Ideal Leadership Maryland members have a desire to learn more about Maryland’s most critical issues and a personal commitment to be a force for positive change in their organizations, their communities and their state.
