Virginia White Advances as MACo’s New Deputy Director

Virginia White, a visible and familiar leader among MACo’s professional staff since 2010, will now serve as the Association’s Deputy Director.

In her leadership role, Virginia will oversee the full range of day-to-day functions involving the staff, facilities, and vendor relationships for the association. She will continue to serve as the functional lead of the Member Services team, that delivers counties’ education and service opportunities through a wide range of offerings. She will remain the lead coordinator of the summer and winter conference events.

“Virginia has established herself as a source of ideas to make our organization better, and follows up with what’s needed to see them through,” said Michael Sanderson, MACo’s Executive Director. “I welcome her as a full partner in helping to keep MACo vital and valuable for all of our member counties.”

Prior to working with MACo, Virginia was the Director of Training & Special Events with the Maryland Association of Resources for Families & Youth (MARFY), where she spent several years curating educational and partnership opportunities for social workers and providers of foster care services. Virginia graduated with honors from Washington College in Kent County, Maryland, hailing from Charles County, originally.

Virginia also recently completed the High Performance Leadership Academy, an offering co-sponsored by the National Association of Counties targeting emerging leaders in county service.
