These young leaders, ideally aged 28 to 38, will be recruited from throughout Delaware, without regard to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or political persuasion.
Leadership Delaware, Inc. is open to all who work in Delaware and/or have their “roots” in Delaware. Participants are selected based on ability, demonstrated leadership, and a keen interest in their community, with a commitment to “making a difference.” The application process is to ensure an outstanding class consisting of members from diverse backgrounds, experiences and geographical locations. Approximately 20-25 participants are chosen annually.
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 five Candidate Receptions.
New Castle County Candidate Receptions
Thursday, August, 17, 6-8:00 PM
Tuesday, August 29, 6-8:00 PM
Saturday, September 16, 1-3:00 PM
Wednesday, September 27, 6-8:00 PM
(NCC Receptions will be held in Centreville, DE. Directions will be provided after you RSVP)
Sussex & Kent County Candidate Reception
Thursday, September 21, 6-8:00 PM, Abbott’s Grill (249 NE Front St, Milford, DE 19963)
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 meeting and talk with our Board Members, the Fellows of our current class, and with many of our graduate Fellows.
During this crisp, informative, fun program, you will hear from a number 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, Executive Assistant to the Chairman & CEO, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
