Each year, since 1984, we have gathered a cohort of community members to participate in a seminar series for the purpose of enhancing community knowledge and civic engagement.  The group meets one day per month over a period of 9 months on a variety of community leadership topics.  The curriculum focus is networking, information, skill development and team-building.  There is a nomination and application process to be accepted into the program.  Tuition is $950 for the series, which includes meals and class materials.


To graduate from Leadership La Porte County, a participant is expected to attend all sessions. Three excused absences are allowed.

  1. A two day opening retreat in September is mandatory.
  2. One full day per month, October through May, which will run approximately 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  3. Please review the proposed class dates prior to commitment.
  4. Tuition for each participant is $950 inclusive. Payment plans are available.
  5. Partial payment is due upon acceptance to the program.
  6. Tuition is non-refundable after August 31st.
