Two members of The Arc Carroll County staff have completed The Arc Maryland Leadership Academy, an 18-month program to prepare future leaders in local chapters of The Arc.  Stephanie Bell, Assistant Director of Quality Assurance and Jillian Snyder, Community Employment Coordinator, received their plaques at a commencement ceremony on December 14 in Laurel.

This advanced leadership development program is designed to give potential future leaders of The Arc a broad overview of the organization and how it functions from the national and state levels to the chapter level.  Participants learn about the roles of the Executive Director, volunteer leadership, community and legislative advocacy, marketing and development.
