How did you learn of Chautauqua Leadership Network? (select only one)


The CLN program begins with a MANDATORY weekend retreat generally held the third weekend in February. It is followed by 1/2-day or full-day training sessions occurring once a month. In addition, there are small group projects that require some participation outside of the scheduled training time. A detailed schedule will be available online by November 30. Candidates are REQUIRED TO ATTEND the weekend retreat, as future personal development is based on this session. If you do not attend the weekend retreat, and/or miss a limited number of classes, you will become illegible to participate. In such case TUITION IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

Chautauqua Leadership Network is a membership funded and volunteer ran non-profit organization. After graduation, it is expected that you will further develop your leadership growth by supporting CLN with a membership contribution and volunteering to serve on a CLN committee for at least 1 year. These post-Class years with CLN will further grow your career skills, leadership growth at an organizational level, and greatly expand networking opportunities.

Thank you for your application. You will be contacted by the selection committee once your application has be reviewed.

Tuition is $1,800 for the Class of 2024 (tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE and subject to change on a yearly basis); Tuition is due by December 15th.
