This course is one full day once a month. Understanding that we may not be able to use the day you choose, what day of the week works best for you?
I fully understand Montrose U Leadership Class is a nine-month course that includes a three-day trip to the State Capital. I understand community sponsors subsidize tuition, which partially covers my participation in the program, and that these sponsors have faith I will successfully fulfill all program requirements including arriving on time, staying for the duration of each module, attending all scheduled activities, and being a valuable participant in group activities and discussions. Photos will be taken during most sessions and I understand these might be used in program promotional materials. I understand any falsification of information supplied in my application will result in immediate dismissal from the program. I also understand the Leadership Class has a very limited number of participants and by signing this Contract of Understanding I am making a commitment, if selected, to fill one of these spots. Email notice reminders will be sent each month with session times, locations and additional information. Meals are provided during the program sessions. Please carefully review the Class Schedule for session dates before agreeing . Participation in the retreat is paramount to team bonding, leadership development, and orientation (not to mention a lot of fun) and for this reason is mandatory.
