Program Attendance

The Leadership Program involves a significant time commitment. Class sessions are scheduled two times monthly from 5:30 – 8:30 PM, usually on Mondays. It is important that you attend all of the sessions; only two absences are permitted. There is also a weekend retreat in early September (Saturday/Sunday) and an all-day Saturday retreat in January. During the class project, January through May, you may need to participate in additional small-group meetings. Your Leadership classmates will expect you to put your best effort into the project just as much as you will come to expect the same from them. Attendance at each class is important, so please take time to consider your personal schedule. Time commitment is a factor in our consideration of candidates.

Tuition Payment

Tuition is $899, due and payable by June 30. You may use your major credit card (Visa, Mastercard) to pay tuition. Employers are encouraged to sponsor employees in the program as a part of their community outreach as well as enhancement of the employee’s leadership skills.
