The Program

Leadership Maryland, an independent statewide leadership program to develop informed senior-level leaders was created in 1992 to cultivate the interest, the statewide knowledge and the leadership capacities of Maryland’s leaders. Fifty accomplished and diverse leaders are selected for the program annually by their peers.


The People

Our members are the top leaders in Maryland. They represent businesses, education, government, nonprofits and labor unions. Our goal is to ensure that each class includes diversity in ethnicity, age, gender, industry, and geography.  It is this diversity of opinions and perspectives that makes the program meaningful and rewarding.


The Professor

Eliot Pfanstiehl is not really a professor, but he is our incredibly talented and skilled facilitator, and he is the CEO of Strathmore. LMD President and CEO Renee Winsky '05 and Eliot nurture each class through mindful exposure to complex policy issues, supplemented with access to remarkable leaders and institutions.
