TITLE: Administrative Specialist

BACKGROUND: Leadership Baltimore County, Inc. (LBC) is a federally recognized, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1983. LBC’s mission is to bring high achievers with diverse perspectives together to heighten their civic awareness, enhance their organizational effectiveness, and become a driving force for positive change in their workplace and Baltimore County.

Our mission is achieved through two programs: Signature and Alumni. Our Signature Program explores the challenges and opportunities facing Baltimore County in monthly day-long sessions from September through June. The hallmarks of our sessions are: (1) engaging dialogues with the movers, shakers, and decision-makers in Baltimore County; and (2) experiential activities in and out of the “classroom.” Topics examined may include economic development, education, public safety, social services, Baltimore County government, Maryland State government, transportation, healthcare, civic engagement, regionalism, diversity, and the environment. Upon graduating from the ten-month program, LBC alumni engage in the community by taking on leadership roles with nonprofit and community organizations, and/or government advisory boards or task forces. Our Alumni Program provides ongoing learning and engaging activities for its alumni of approximately 1,300 individuals.

CULTURE: LBC has a small staff of three full-time employees. We work closely together, collaborating, and communicating daily.
