These include bringing diverse populations together to enhance relationships, partnerships and learning opportunities for personal and professional growth; strengthening the economic, social and civic fabric of our community; and inspiring innovative solutions to issues in our community. Both organizations value investing in people to assist them in realizing their full leadership potential.


Don Elliott, senior director, Continuing Education Operations and Outcomes at CCBC, is a 2024 graduate of the LBC program. “Leadership Baltimore County helped open my eyes not just to the wide variety of issues facing Baltimore County, but also the dedicated organizations and individuals working hard to address these concerns,” said Elliott. “I met representatives from law enforcement, social services, healthcare, education, planning and economic development, and private business and learned how by working together we can tackle the challenges facing our communities.”


Elliott’s department, CCBC Continuing Education, serves multiple audiences, including youth, career preparation, job skills enhancement, life enrichment and seniors. This program enabled him to network with a variety of groups and agencies working with these populations to learn more about what is needed and what is available. “This helps me in turn influence CCBC Continuing Education course and program offerings to meet the needs of our community,” he said.
