Participation in Leadership Lafourche is open to persons with residence or employment in Lafourche Parish. Classes typically will consist of approximately 20-25 individuals. Because the number of appointments is limited, applicants who are not selected are encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
Participants in Leadership Lafourche will be chosen by the Leadership Lafourche Selection Committee based upon the information provided in this application. The Committee will be seeking representation from a demographic cross-section of the Parish. Participants will be community leaders and potential community leaders active in business, education, the arts, religion, government, law, media, labor, community-based organizations, and ethnic and/or minority groups, and will reflect the diversity of the Parish.
Applicants must have the full support of the organization or corporation they represent.
Attendance at the retreats and monthly sessions is mandatory. Any participant missing the opening retreat or the closing ceremony or more than one of the seven full-day programs will be automatically dropped from the program, and no portion of the tuition shall be refunded.
All material included in this application will be held in confidence. The applications will be reviewed only by the Selection Committee.
