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.

* All images taken prior to COVID – This year’s event will utilize CDC precautions with face masks and social¬† separation.

Your attendance at one of these events is mandatory, but it will not be at all painful!

Our Candidate Receptions are free.  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.

Please email Lora Matteis, Program Director & Executive Assistant to CEO.
