Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th) has been selected to participate in the 2011 Emerging Leaders Program, an initiative of the State Legislative Leaders Foundation and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia.

The annual program brings together legislators from across the U.S. to discuss issues related to ethical leadership, the art of compromise and coalition-building, and the philosophical underpinnings of representative democracy.

Hope was selected to participate by the leadership of the House of Delegates.

“It’s an honor,” Hope said. “I look forward to interacting with colleagues from other states to learn new ways to better govern and solve critical problems. The only way we will meet these challenges is through working together to find common solutions.”
