Participation in Leadership Fauquier was pivotal for me both as a community leader and for our organization (The Arc of NCV). I gained invaluable insights about our community from the unique opportunities to directly connect with local leaders. In addition to personally building confidence and skills over the course of the year, our organizational connections within the community multiplied. This growth was instrumental in meeting our first major funder. The comradery of Leadership Fauquier continues to be a cornerstone of growth.
