Each program day is a unique experience that cannot be recreated. Because of this, Leadership Pflugerville has strict attendance requirements. In case of a work or family emergency or personal illness, a class member may miss up to 1 (one) program day. In addition, the program participant will be required to attend a city council meeting and a school board meeting. If the program participant fails to meet these obligations, he or she will be asked to withdraw from the program and the tuition is non-refundable. Both the Leadership Pflugerville applicant and their sponsoring organization must commit to ensuring the applicant can fulfill the requirements of the program.
Be engaged and make the most of this experience. This program offers an opportunity for leadership training and connecting with the community in a way that you wouldn’t experience on your own. Ask questions, give feedback, and take what you learn out into your everyday life.
Attendance at 6 (six) day long programs is expected. Promptness is important for the program days to start and end on time and to be respectful of others’ time. If you are 1 (one) hour late to a session it will count as a ½-day absence. Leaving a session early will also count as a ½-day absence. During the program sessions the participant’s cell phones or other electronic communication devices will be set to a silent mode. Phone calls and other forms of communication will be limited to break times only. We will allow time during the day to catch up on emails and phone calls.
Local businesses are encouraged to support their employees with leadership potential to apply. Class size is limited.
