Through a series of intensive seminars, the Core Program experience enhances civic knowledge and awareness and enriches leadership skills. Participants receive non-profit board training, and board placement is offered to all interested participants and graduates.
For any questions regarding the application process, please contact Angela Tillar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Core Program consists of eleven day-long seminar sessions from September through June. Meetings generally consist of half-day immersion in a civic topic, followed by an afternoon of leadership development or trustee skills development training. Participants receive individual skills development feedback.
Each meeting and speaker is evaluated to ensure that LEADERSHIP is meeting the group’s needs. Assessment tools, feedback, and experiential training enrich the experience.
Qualified candidates are seasoned individuals with leadership skills and a drive to take responsibility for improving the quality of life in the region. Generally, more than half of the class has earned MBAs or MAs, and more than a quarter of the class hold JD or PhD credentials. Each nominee should be prominent within his or her organization, have the sponsor’s personal endorsement, be prepared to commit time to participate in the program, and intend to stay in the region. Admission is competitive. Tuition for the 2017-2018 program year is $8,200.
