April 18, 2018 @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us as the Director at The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC) Anne Couldridge give a lecture on Leadership in the workplace. She will share her in-depth knowledge of what it means to be a leader and how it feels when you are learning to be a leader on the spot in today’s workplace. Anne worked with CPARC for the last eight years and on her way to becoming the Director in October of 2017 she has both seen and experienced what it is to be a leader both at work and at home.
Please come out to see her speak and meet other leaders in the area. We can all learn something from one another, no matter the topic and this is a great chance to learn from an established community leader. Don’t miss it!
A little about Anne:

Anne has held leadership roles in a variety of community and professional settings. She has been active in grassroots community organizing, state-level planning committees and has co-Chaired the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Task Force of Cumberland & Perry Counties.
In her role as Director of Development of The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC), Anne has collaborated with RC Theatres to begin regular showings of “Sensory Friendly Films”. She collaborated with Harrisburg International Airport, Delta Airlines, the Transportation Security Administration and The Arc of PA on the “Wings for All” project.
