Details for Applicants and Participants

Applications are due by July 31, 2019 for the September 8-13, 2019 Institute. The fee of $800 per applicant (if application is received by July 15th before 5 pm PT) or $1000 per applicant (if application is received on July 15th, 5 pm PT or later) includes four lunches, two dinners, snacks and all materials.

Institute Highlights:

The class is limited to a select group of emerging leaders offering opportunity for collaboration and an enduring network of support. Approximately 35 people will be accepted. Please contact us if you have questions about this.

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 in El Cajon, CA. Travel and hotel accommodations are at the expense of the participant. We have a room block at a rate of $139/night (plus taxes and fees). Once you are accepted we will be in touch with more information about the accommodations.

The California Leadership Institute will begin early Sunday evening with a welcome dinner and will end before noon on Friday.

Cancellations will be accepted only until four 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 $200 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.
