Details for Applicants and Participants

Applications are due by March 20, 2018 for the May 14 - 18, 2018 Institute. The fee of 500 USD (Early bird rate, applications received by close of business on March 5th); $700 USD (Regular rate, applications received after March 5th and prior to March 20th) includes some meals and all supplies. We will send an invoice after you are accepted.

Institute Highlights:

The class is limited to a select group of emerging leaders offering opportunity for collaboration and an enduring network of support. Approximately 32 people will be accepted.

A fair amount of preparation work is required. Participants will be asked to read several books, to submit a personal leadership challenge, and to take a 360 degree assessment of leadership skills prior to the Leadership Institute.

The Institute will be held at University of British Columbia Okanagan, 3333 University Way, Kelowna, BC V1V 1V7, Canada. Travel and hotel accommodations are at the expense of the participant.

The British Columbia Leadership Institute will begin mid-Monday morning and will end around 2 pm on Friday.

Cancellations will be accepted only until three weeks before the start date of the Institute. Prior to that date, cancellations must be made in writing (e-mail is acceptable, please confirm that we have received) and funds will be returned, minus a $165 processing fee. There will be no refunds after that date and, if an intended participant cancels after that date or is a no-show, the full registration fee will still be owed. We regret that we cannot offer refunds for late cancellations or no shows, however, if your agency would like to substitute another appropriate individual, this can be done with prior approval but may include a fee.
