2024 Module Schedule

A few things to know about Leadership Evergreen modules and projects:


From January through October, one module (or class) is held monthly. The graduation ceremony is held in November. The modules are 3-8 hours in length. Click on the above link to see more details about the modules. 


The Leadership Evergreen program is highly competitive. Acceptance into the class should be regarded with pride, as there is typically a waitlist for individuals who want to participate. Every effort should be made to attend all modules in their entirety and all meetings related to the planning and execution of the Class Project. Exceptions will be made only for situations beyond the class member’s control.


The class size is generally limited to 15 people.  Active participation among class members is highly encouraged for maximum results.  Each class will complete a group class project, leaving their legacy with both LE and the mountain communities.  This project may take one to two (1-2) years to complete and require numerous meetings.  Attendance is expected at project planning and execution meetings unless excused due to circumstances beyond the control of the class member.  See “Class Project” below for additional details.


All modules must be completed to graduate.  If a module is missed, the class member will be responsible for completing a make-up assignment to the satisfaction of the module leader prior to the next scheduled module.  The make-up assignment should be one to three (1-3) pages long commensurate with the length and breadth of the module missed reporting:  1) knowledge of topic of the module, 2) potential leadership opportunities in that area, and 3) a personal reflection on the interest of the class member in becoming a future leader in that area.  Each class member is encouraged to form a “buddy” relationship with another class member.  The “buddy” can be used as a resource for module content and provide handouts for reference. Classes that are not made up can result in failure to graduate.  A maximum of two classes may be made up.  If the class member misses three modules, graduation will be delayed.


The Class will be expected to collaboratively select, plan, and execute a worthy project to benefit the Foothills Community.  Some planning time will be designated in the Leadership Evergreen calendar; however, additional time may be necessary.  Each class member is expected to actively participate in the selection, planning, and execution of the Class Project, which could occur during the subsequent year.  This expectation should be seriously considered as the Class Members select the scope of their Class Project.


One of the learning experiences for Leadership Evergreen class members is the ability to reach consensus on decisions regarding community issues, class projects and challenges presented in leadership development. Respect for fellow class members’ values and opinions is always expected.


Unless otherwise noted by the module leader, dress for Leadership Evergreen functions is Foothills Community casual.


Some class modules will be held at local businesses and restaurants. After the first mixer in January, alcohol is not permitted during the regular module program. There will be designated social times following the modules.


Completing class modules includes finishing a module survey. After each module, the module leader will email you once the survey items for that topic have been posted. Evaluations assist the Board in determining future class module information, so they are an important part of the Leadership Evergreen Board of Directors’ decision-making.
