For Leadership Morgan Hill to accomplish its stated goals, the full participation of each individual is necessary. Therefore, the mandatory requirements for the class include attendance at the evening Orientation Session and Two Day Retreat in January 2017.  If you can NOT attend both of these sessions you can NOT continue in the Program.   In addition, you will be expected to attend and actively participate in the scheduled full-day Friday sessions, Monday evening classes, stay for each entire session. Please remember, LMH has an Attendance Policy that does not allow for participants to miss more than 2 classes.   Along with the program schedule, you will also participate in a hands-on community project that will be determined by the class.
