Leadership Southern Maryland Seeking Projects

LEONARDTOWN, Md., June 20, 2016: Leadership Southern Maryland’s Programs Committee is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations with Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties to provide projects to be completed by the LSM Class of 2017. Link to LSM RFP.

Proposals will be reviewed and selections will be made in August 2016. A maximum of eight projects will be selected to form the Leadership Southern Maryland Connections Project List for 2017. The project timeframe must run from October 2016 through March 2017.

The mission of Leadership Southern Maryland (LSM) is to educate and inspire a diverse group of current and emerging leaders to create collaborations and partnerships to impact the community needs of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties.

In keeping with this mission, Leadership Southern Maryland is looking to establish a partnership with nonprofit organizations within the Southern Maryland region. This partnership, Leadership Southern Maryland Connections, will aid the participants’ learning by increasing their knowledge of regional issues, lend the nonprofit with extra expertise and manpower to complete a needed project, and allow for team building within a small group. Leadership Southern Maryland Connections will affect change for the organization and region while enabling participants to go beyond simply connecting the dots of regional issues by connecting themselves to the organizations to become a part of lasting change.
