Details for Applicants and Participants

Applications are due by July 1, 2019 for the August 11-16, 2019 institute. The fee of $800 USD (Early Bird Rate, applications received prior to or on June 3rd by 11:59 PT); $1000 USD (Regular rate, applications received on or after June 4th). We will send an invoice after you are accepted. This includes some meals and all supplies.

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 Oregon Leadership Institute, to be held in Portland, OR, will begin Sunday afternoon and will end around noon 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 $190 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.
