LEADERSHIP MONTGOMERY "connecting leaders to effect change"
To graduate from a Leadership Montgomery Class, a participant is expected to attend all sessions. The class days are scheduled once a month, with at least one class requiring a social activity at the end of the day or a homework assignment during the day.
Class members are divided into teams of five to eight people for work on a class project that is designed to address a significant community issue/need. This is an extremely important part of the class; therefore, participation is mandatory. Project teams meet outside class time to plan and implement their projects. The class projects are presented to the business community on the final class day.
To graduate from the program, attendance is required at the orientation, both retreat days in their entirety, and at the project presentations. Class members are allowed to miss one class day and still be allowed to graduate. They must make up the missed class day on the next year. A partially missed day counts as an absence. If two class days are missed, the class member will not be allowed to graduate.
The year following graduation, alumni are expected to 1) serve on a class day committee to help plan a class day for the subsequent class, 2) join the Leadership Montgomery Alumni Organization and 3) actively support alumni activities.
