Connecting Leaders.

Improving Life.

We can’t wait to meet you.

Recruiting for upcoming classes is a year-round process. The recruiting committee, which is composed of members of previous CIVIC classes, meets periodically to assess the recommendations. Each class is comprised of a cross section of leaders from the business, education, military, cultural and non-profit communities. CIVIC also has a strong committment to geographic, ethnic and gender diversity.

New classes are announced at the completion of each class year. The deliberations of the recruitment committee are confidential and its decisions are final. Candidates that are recommended but not selected for a given class year may be held for consideration in following years.

Welcome, Class of 2018

We’re delighted to welcome the CIVIC Class of 2018.  Our class members arrive with professional success and achievement.  Over the coming year, they’ll learn about  issues and ideas we hope will inspire them to leverage that expertise in support of Hampton Roads.  Our class members and alumni are seasoned professionals who bring extraordinary capacity to the issues that challenge Hampton Roads. They are actively engaged in public life as elected officials, members of boards and commissions, and as skilled volunteer experts working on pivotal issues important to the region like sea level rise, veteran transition, and the health and well-being of children, among others.
