Leadership Howard County will hold its annual Big Event featuring guest speaker Amelia Rose Earhart, who will present her keynote speech “Navigating thru Turbulent Times.” Earhart will share her inspirational lessons and how to create a flight plan to navigate unchartered territory with courage, face fear with confidence and make adjustments to stay productive and successful.

The Big Event brings together more than 400 leaders from business, government and nonprofit organizations in Howard County. Proceeds from the event support Leadership Howard County programs and scholarships.


Friday, Sept. 24 | 4:30 p.m.



Turf Valley Resort | 2700 Turf Valley Road, Ellicott City

In 2014, Earhart flew a single-engine aircraft 28,000 miles around the globe. She overcame technical, physical and emotional obstacles to complete the flight. Earhart’s aviation analogies speak to the power of self-identity, perseverance and triumphing over challenges.

M&T Bank is the title sponsor of the Big Event. Through Sept. 6, general admission tickets cost $100 and $75 for students and small nonprofits with 25 or less employees. Beginning Sept. 7, all tickets cost $125. A virtual option is available for those who cannot attend in person. To register or learn more, visit or call 410-730-4474.


I have inquired about a media ticket / pass in order to cover the event for the community. It would be fun to attend and take a bunch of photos of the event. I will keep you up to date if that works out.
