A Note About COVID-19

As COVID-19 vaccinations are more widely distributed, we fully anticipate delivering an in-person curriculum for the 2021-22 leadership programs. We will continue to monitor and follow all federal, state and local guidelines around in-person meetings.

In the event there are restrictions in September that prevent gatherings over 25 people, we will cultivate an exciting hybrid experience utilizing video conferencing and smaller, outdoor gatherings similar to the successful 2020-21 leadership program year.
