Candidate Receptions

For anyone who may be interested in learning more and perhaps applying to become a Fellow in our next class, below is some information about our Leadership Delaware program – content, intensity, expectations, cost, and commitment.

The first step is attending one of our Candidate Receptions.  The dates of our 2020 Receptions will be posted soon.

New Castle County Candidate Receptions for the Class of 2021

August & September 2020: exact dates and location TBA

 Sussex & Kent County Candidate Reception for the Class of 2021

September 2020: exact date and location TBA

Your attendance at one of these events is mandatory, but it will not be at all painful! The Candidate Receptions are free, and food and beverages will be provided. But, the highlight of each evening will be your opportunity to meet and talk with our Board Members, Fellows of our current class, and with many of our graduate Fellows.

During this crisp, informative, fun program, you will hear from several of our Board Members and Fellows who will help you gain an understanding of the depth, breadth, and intensity of our program, and what you as a Fellow can expect.

The number of prospective applicants who can be accommodated at each Candidate Reception is limited. Therefore, you are urged to RSVP to us soonest with your preferred date of attendance.
