Leadership Lancaster is a learning experience that requires attendance at all program sessions and completion of assignments. The Fall two-day retreat on September 10 and 11, 2020 is a mandatory portion of the program. I also understand that a $150 deposit is required within four weeks of notification of acceptance in order to hold my place in the Core Class. Finally, I understand that tuition is not refundable upon withdrawal from the program.

Leadership Lancaster recognizes and values the diversity inherent in the community we serve. We are committed to establishing space for meaningful dialogue as we develop a diverse group of leaders that is truly representative of Lancaster County.
We are intentional in our efforts to recruit participants that are diverse, inclusive, and equitable. We welcome those who share this commitment and who wish to join with us in our work to develop effective leaders who are able to work collaboratively to serve the evolving needs of our community.
We promote, model, and expect respectful dialogue in all of our programs. When participants are committed to interacting respectfully with those who are different from themselves, their capacity for leadership is enhanced. As leaders, we are not always called on to serve those who are like us.
Above all, we strive to EDUCATE, connect, and inspire our participants to become servant leaders prepared to meet our community's challenges and opportunities now and in the future.

Upon successful completion of this program, I will continue to stay engaged with Leadership Lancaster as an alumni. I will also assume a more active and effective leadership role in my community.
