Leadership Somerset is a yearlong program, taking place one weekday a month. Each session is a full day (plan 8 AM to 5 PM). Program fellows are expected to attend all sessions. The tentative calendar for the 2020 program year is:
January 8 (attendance at this first session is mandatory to continue in the program)
Program fellows may miss no more than one and one half sessions to officially graduate.
Leadership Somerset program fellows are expected to participate in and complete several projects, including one major class project, which will require time outside of class sessions to plan and complete. Program fellows are also provided with pre-work (readings that can take an hour or two of preparation time before each session).
Because of these commitments, applicants must have the support and commitment of their employer.
