Leadership Team - Barbara Lanning, 2nd Vice President
Barbara Lanning, 2nd Vice President
Barbara’s interest in politics and policy was nurtured by parents who brought her along for poll work and political events as a child and later a stint as a teenage go-fer for a (losing) congressional campaign. She moved to Miami shortly after graduation for a career in international telecommunications as a trailblazing woman opening new markets throughout the world. Ready for a less nomadic existence, she switched careers utilizing her managerial skills producing events and tradeshows.
Barbara joined the League in 2016, she has served as Co-Chair of Hot Topics, Board Member and Co-President of the Orange County League from 2021-2023. Barbara holds both a BA and MBA degrees from Southern Methodist University and an MIM from American Graduate School of International Management (aka Thunderbird).
