Andersson Selected for Emerging Leaders Program

Representative Steve Andersson was selected to participate in the 2016 Emerging Leaders Program at the University of Virginia.

The program is an annual event, and a collaborative effort of the State Legislative Leaders Foundation and the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business Administration. This summer, 50 legislators from across the nation will come together through this program, and participate in challenging classroom discussions—ones that seek to inspire legislators to meet challenges and responsibilities with confidence, understanding and vigor.

Since its start, over 500 legislators have benefitted from the program and have continued their public service careers, even moving to position of leadership. Rep. Andersson is looking forward to attending the upcoming program. “I am honored to be selected for this great opportunity,” said Andersson. “I hope to gain insight and perspective in meeting and working with fellow state legislators from the 47 others states. I am excited to have been selected and look forward to this summer’s event.”

The program is made possible through grants from Advance America, Comcast, Entertainment Software Association and Walmart, and this year will take place from July 11-14th.
