I have discussed with my employer my intention to participate in the Leadership Lansing program. I understand that attendance at ALL scheduled Leadership Lansing sessions is mandatory because my participation is essential to the program's success. I have received permission to be absent from work one full day a month. I have also discussed with my employer the importance of my participation in each session and that absence could result in my dismissal from the Leadership Lansing program. If for some reason I must withdraw from Leadership Lansing, notification must be given two weeks prior to the first class. If notification is given later than that, a $500 fee will be assessed.
