Leadership Lakes Region has decided to take one year off due to the health consequences and uncertainty of COVID-19. Normally, a new leadership class begins in early October for 25 class members and concludes its Program Year in May of the following year. The decision to not hold a class in 2020-2021was made by unanimous decision of the Board of Directors at their August Zoom meeting. “There were just too many unknowns and health safety issues right now for us to feel comfortable starting a new class” said Board Chair Don Morrissey. Applications of individuals who already applied for the next class have been reviewed and acceptances granted, albeit for October 2021 not October 2020. Others interested in the program may still apply with the understanding their class won’t start until fall 2021.
