Brown Named 2023 New Leader Honoree


Leadership Anne Arundel (LAA), the premier leadership training and networking institute in Anne Arundel County, recently announced their 2023 New Leaders Honorees. Honorees were nominated by LAA Alumni and the community at large. Nominees do not have to be a graduate of a LAA program and were selected based on commencing an accepted, appointed, or elected leadership role that serves and/or impacts the Anne Arundel County Community since March of 2022. The position can be held in a Non-Profit, Government or For-Profit organization.

HA’s President & CEO, Karen Theimer Brown, was selected as a new leader honoree. Since stepping into the President role in June 2022, Brown has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to HA’s mission to Preserve, Protect, and Connect and serves as an exemplary leader in historic preservation. Brown was honored at a breakfast celebration on April 26, 2023 with the additional 38 honorees.

According to LAA President & CEO Kris Valerio Shock, “As the nexus of community leadership in Anne Arundel County, Leadership Anne Arundel is proud to feature not just LAA graduates, but so many key leaders in government, for profit and nonprofit organizations stepping up to leadership positions in the past year. The New Leaders Celebration provides an excellent occasion to connect with these new leaders and the broader Anne Arundel County leadership network.”
