Details for Applicants and Participants

The fee for the Institute will be $1400 Early Bird Rate (if application is received before or on March 31) or $1650 Regular Rate (if application is received after March 31).
The fee will include hotel accommodations, breakfast and some lunches throughout the week, two dinners, snack, 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 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 Texas Leadership Institute will begin early Sunday evening with a welcome dinner and will end before 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 $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.
