I NEED TO MISS ONE OF THE SESSIONS. CAN I STILL GRADUATE?

As is the case of all similar leadership programs, we have established an attendance policy. All participants must attend the opening retreat and closing retreats in January and October. Inability to attend the opening retreat would require withdrawal from the class (no tuition refunded) and inability to attend the October retreat would result in the participant not graduating (no tuition refunded). The dates for sessions are provided in the commitment letter. Due to the cohesive nature of the entire program, missing more than one (1) session will result in the participant not graduating; participant will be permitted to attend all remaining sessions. Unless otherwise posted or announced, all sessions will begin promptly at 8 a.m. To gain the most from each program, participants are required to be on time.
