Applications for the 2010-2011 Leadership Bonita class are available now and can be downloaded here.
The deadline for all applications is July 16, 2010. The program is highly competitive, so applicants are encouraged to re-apply to subsequent programs if they are not initially selected. Many Leadership Bonita participants are sponsored by their employer; a select number of scholarships are made available thanks to the companies that participate in the Leadership Stewards program, including Chadwick Saunders of Downing-Frye Realty – The Saunders Group and Coconut Point Mall.
A mandatory weekend retreat kicks-off the program on August 26th. The remaining program sessions are held on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. approximately every three to four weeks beginning in September 2010 and ending in May 2011. Program sessions include a mixture of lectures, presentations, tours and field trips. In order to graduate, participants must attend the kick-off retreat and each monthly session.
