Statement of Commitment
Candidates must commit to attending and fully participating in all of Leadership Loudoun’s Leadership Development Program sessions. Participants must attend the two-day opening retreat in its entirety, which may include an overnight stay. Following the two-day retreat, Program sessions will be held once a month from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The annual Legislative Trip to Richmond, VA, held in February, see dates below, is also required. Additional time will be determined by individual teams.
We have a strict attendance policy. Participants must attend the entire day of every monthly session. Any participant who misses more than one full day or two half days will not be permitted to graduate from the Leadership Development Program. In such cases, tuition will not be refunded.
