Time Commitment

The Leadership St. Tammany Program time commitment consists of:

  • One Mandatory Weekend Retreat in August
  • One full day per month for class – typically from 7:45am – 5:15pm on the second Wednesday of each month, except when it conflicts with a holiday week for Mardi Gras or Easter
  • One Evening Retreat in May
  • Evening Graduation in early June

Attendance at the weekend retreat is mandatory to participate. Class members are allowed to miss up to 9 hours cumulative and still graduate with their class. If more than 9 hours is missed (up to 27 hours), the class member has the following two years to make up the missed hours and graduate. In short, you have to attend if you want to graduate.

This policy reflects the Program’s understanding that most of its’ participants are busy, busy people.

If you have any questions about the attendance policies, please contact us for more information.

In addition, class members may have the opportunity to participate in occasional programs/activities outside of class. These opportunities outside of regular class days are completely voluntary.
