Details for Applicants and Participants

Applications are due by September 5, 2017 for the October 15-20, 2017 Institute. The fee of $800 includes three 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, with participation limited to one person per organization.

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 the San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center, 75 Rancho Camino Dr, Pomona, CA 91766. Travel and hotel accommodations is at the expense of the participant. We have a room block at the Ayres Hotel, Chino Hills at $106/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 two 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 $100 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.
