Letter from the President – January 2020

Happy New Year! At LBC, we are off and running and looking forward to implementing all of our plans for the new year and decade ahead.

What’s new at LBC in this new year? We are piloting a new protocol for accepting candidates into our program, which calls for accepting applications, interviewing candidates and making decisions on a rolling basis, year-round.

What does that mean for you? If you are in an industry from which we receive a lot of applicants (i.e., financial, health care, etc.) you will want to submit your application early for the best chance of being accepted into the upcoming class. Once we meet our threshold for attorneys or bankers, for example, any eligible applicants after that will be deferred to the following class. So, register for an upcoming Information Session soon so you can decide if LBC would be a good fit for you! The February Information Session will be third one for our next class!

When was the last time you attended an alumni event? Wait no longer and register for the Sagamore Distillery Behind-the-Scenes tour Feb. 27 at 5 p.m.! Come on out to say hello, reconnect with your classmates, meet other alumni, cultivate meaningful relationships and have a great time while learning all about a Baltimore business. There are a limited number of spaces so sign up now!

Please be on the lookout for an LBC survey coming soon to your inbox. Our Alumni Engagement Committee, chaired by Patti Dash, LBC ’18, wants to hear from you about your interests, curiosities and passions so we can ensure an engaging alumni experience designed with you in mind.

Finally, thank you so much to all of our alumni who have joined or renewed as an LBC member! If you haven’t renewed yet, there’s still time. Renew online today. Your membership is important to us and motivates us to deliver great programming just for you.

With appreciation,
