Cian Robinson, President of Robinson Ventures, named to LEAD Virginia

LEAD VIRGINIA, the statewide leadership program now entering its fourth year of educating Virginia's leaders about the issues most relevant to the Commonwealth, has announced its 2008 class members.

The 44 class participants are senior-level executives in business, education, non-profit and government agencies throughout the Commonwealth. They are experienced, recognized leaders within their professions who are seeking to bolster a shared vision of progressive change through active community involvement across Virginia. Included in that list was Cian Robinson, President, Robinson Ventures.

LEAD VIRGINIA educates participants about regional differences and statewide needs through the shared experience of seven two-day sessions held throughout the Commonwealth. Endorsed by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, state universities and regional leadership organizations, the program offers leaders a forum for gaining deeper insights into complex statewide issues, exchanging resources, creating momentum and working within and outside the political arena to usher in positive change for the Commonwealth. Specific curriculum themes of local/regional economies, as well as the larger issues of education and health, are explored through in-depth dialogue, on-site field studies and experiential activities designed to highlight the diverse interests, resources and challenges of each region.
